Catherine Deneuve in A Christmas Tale. Showing at Winter Park Library.

The title of this week's movie is "A Christmas Tale" (2008) French [un Conte de Noel] Watch the trailer at Start Time: 6:30 PM End Time: 9:30 PM Cost: $5.00 at the door, young folks who have been in their body 55 years or more get in for $3.00! This bi-monthly movie night happens on the first and third of each month, except when it needs to be moved around, like this week, due to holidays. The venue has no cooks and no kitchen, so there is no dinner with this movie, you would need to bring something to eat from from McDonald's, or some other source, as long as it is in a bag and you don't make a mess. If you do make a mess, clean it up so there is no evidence left. The DVD is projected onto a screen. Seating for some thirty or forty people. Last time 12 people came to see "Kinky Boots" and everyone enjoyed it. Discussion afterwards is always educational and entertaining. The plot summary [according to a reviewer jhailey at hotmail] follows: The Vuillard family gathers: Junon and Abel, a daughter Elizabeth and her son Paul, Henri and a girlfriend, Ivan, his wife Sylvia and their young sons, and cousin Simon. Six years before, Elizabeth paid Henri's debts and demanded he never see her again or visit their parents' home. Paul, at 16, has mental problems and faces a clinical exam. Junon learns she needs a bone marrow transplant if she's to live beyond a few months: thus the détente bringing all together. Two family members have compatible marrow, but the spats, fights, cruel words, drunken toasts, and somewhat civilized bad behavior threaten all; plus Junon may simply refuse treatment. Do we know ourselves? Don't have to pay in advance, just come to Winter Park Public Libray, enter at the right back door.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
