Jack Evans’ film series returns as “From Jack’s Private Stock”
We’ll watch the film on fourth Fridays at 9 a.m. in the boardroom. Bring a friend! It’s free.
This series begins with Atonement on February 22.
This sweeping English drama, based on the book by Ian McEwan, follows the lives of young lovers Cecilia Tallis (Keira Knightley) and Robert Turner (James McAvoy.) When the couple are torn apart by a lie constructed by Cecilia’s jealous younger sister, Briony (Saoirse Ronan), all three of them must deal with the consequences. Robbie is the hardest hit, since Briony’s deception results in his imprisonment, but hope for Cecilia and her beau increases when their paths cross during World War II..
Good friend and film aficionado, Jack Evans, will once again be our guide this Fall and Winter for an eclectic and varied line-up of movies.
