    Everett Stone wants to bring his uptight, conservative girlfriend Meredith to meet his bohemian Connecticut family at Christmas. Straitlaced Meredith, feeling she needs backup, asks her sister to come along. Hoping to win the approval of Everett’s parents and the rest of the family, instead Meredith succeeds only in highlighting her uptight personality and making Everett doubt his intentions. We start with supper, followed by the film and then a discussion of the film, characters, and artistry.

    Inspired by a true story, this Golden Globe winning drama is the first film made in Afghanistan after the fall of the Taliban.  

    After the brutal Taliban regime bans women from working and forbids them to leave their homes without a male escort, a 12-year-old girl and her mother find themselves on the brink of starvation. With nowhere left to turn, the mother disguises her daughter as a boy. Now called “Osama,” the young girl embarks on a terrifying and confusing journey, as she tries to keep the Taliban from discovering her true identity. PG-13; 82 min.

    We will start with supper, followed by the film and then a discussion of the film, characters, and artistry.

    The Hate U Give tells the story of a high school girl named Starr Carter who is constantly switching between two worlds — the poor, mostly black neighborhood where she lives and the wealthy, mostly white prep school that she attends.

Facing pressure from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and decide to stand up for what’s right. PG-13; 133 min.
