DVD Discussion Group: Scent of a Woman

Scent of a Woman is a 1992 American drama film directed by Martin Brest that tells the story of a preparatory school student who takes a job as an assistant to an irascible, blind, medically retired Army officer. It stars Al Pacino, Chris O'Donnell, James Rebhorn, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Gabrielle Anwar.

The basic premise of this meetup is the same as a book club, only with a movie instead. We select a movie on DVD in advance, and we each watch the movie separately at our convenience. Then we get together to discuss it for an hour or so on the third Monday of each month.

C'ville Coffee is a nice space; there are food and drinks available, including hot dinner-style food, and the parking is good.

This month we'll discuss X. Y will open the discussion, and then we will all get to express our opinions, reactions, and ideas about the film.

*Where Can I Find This Movie?:*
For a DVD copy, try local video stores, especially Sneak Reviews; online subscription sites such as Netflix and Blockbuster.com; the public library and the UVa library (if you are affiliated with UVa). It may also be available on streaming from services such as: Netflix, Amazon, Youtube, Hulu, etc. Let George know if none of these will work for you.

If you have any questions or comments, you can always get in touch with me by clicking here: http://www.meetup.com....

Hope to see you there!
