Announcing a new Meetup for Indy Film Buffs Meetup Group!
What: Movie Discussion Meetup
When: Tuesday, August 23,[masked]:00 PM
Where: Cornerstone Coffee
651 E 54th St
Indianapolis, IN 46220
Join us for the monthly movie discussion Meetup at Cornerstone Coffee. As always, the first hour of the Meetup is open to any and all movie-related topics, while the second hour is devoted to an in-depth discussion of the movie of the month.
The August movie of the month is Todd Haynes' Far From Heaven (2002). Julianne Moore stars as a 1950s housewife who must rebuild her life after her husband (Dennis Quaid) comes out of the closet. Dennis Haysbert co-stars as the couple's gardener, with whom she develops a tentative romantic relationship. The film examines the issues of gender, race, sexual orientation and class that that plot summary suggests, but in an unexpected way: through the visual and narrative motifs of a Douglas Sirk melodrama. Far From Heaven will be followed in September by All That Heaven Allows (1955), the Sirk film that was Haynes' primary influence.
