It's the announcement everyone has been waiting for! The first six months of Film Club's Schedule. Carrie from Books and Movies is cohosting with me and basically the format is super relaxed, every other month one of us will host the discussion. We hope you will have watched the movie and will either write about it on your blog if it inspires you enough to do so, or join in the discussion in comments! It's going to be fun...I'm excited!
March 29th--The Island (My Friend Amy)--available on Netflix streaming
Somewhere in Northern Russia in a small Russian Orthodox monastery lives a very unusual man. His fellow-monks are confused by his bizarre conduct. Those who visit the island believe that the man has the power to heal, exorcise demons and foretell the future. However, he considers himself unworthy because of a sin he committed in his youth. The film is a parable, combining the realities of Russian everyday life with monastic ritual and routine.
