Movie Essentials

Date(s) - Friday, February 26, 2021
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


The Movie Essentials Group meets monthly for social evenings and discussion of a selected movie that participants have viewed previously.

In this meeting, the group will discuss the 2005 film The White Countess.

A subtle drama set in pre-war Shanghai and following the modestly romantic interactions of an expatriate American businessman and diplomat disillusioned with the world but achieving a Casablanca-like nightclub dream, and a widowed Russian countess supporting an extended and impoverished exile family hoping to escape a Shanghai slum for Hong Kong, where they imagine their noble lineage can be recognized.

The discussion will begin at 7:00 but the Zoom link will be active by 6:45 to allow social interaction before the discussion. Available for streaming on Prime Video, YouTube and elsewhere. Get the Zoom link by contacting Jane Martin.
