DVD Discussion Group: Brief Encounter

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; food and drink is available, and the parking is good.

This month we'll discuss Brief Encounter (1945). Kim will open the discussion, and then we will all get to express our opinions, reactions, and ideas about the film.

"Meeting a stranger in a railway station, a woman is tempted to cheat on her husband." (imdb.com)

*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.

Hope to see you there!

    Mentioned a lady who had set out to read a book from every country in the world in the course of our conversation. Here's the link to her Blog site:

    Gracious Kim did wonderful presentation and brought up many points that I did not know. It was a lively discussion and everyone had something of value to say. Well done everyone.
    I always have things prepared in my head to say but feels blank when it comes my turn. I guess that is what pencil and paper are for.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
