Movies and Meaning Film: Mass Appeal Mon Aug 27th 2017

6:30pm Potluck
7:30pm Film 


Movies & Meaning returns to the White Horse with MASS APPEAL, the little-seen 1984 drama about conscience, community, and the common good.

In a film marked by utterly compelling performances from the great Jack Lemmon and Charles Durning, it's (then) newcomer Ċ½eljko Ivanek who stands out, playing a young seminarian unwilling to tolerate the compromises of those of us who have settled for a life of pretending that we are more courageous than we actually are. In other words, he's s thorn in the side of people who may need to be reawakened to commitment to what we say we want to do for the world. 

Our co-host Brian Ammons has loved this film for decades, and it deserves a much wider audience. So join us on Monday - if you can, bring a dish to share for the potluck at 6.30pm, and the screening is at 7.30pm, with conversation to follow.
