OUR FIRST MOVIE/BOOK CLUB IN LAKEVIEW: THE SCI-FI MASTERPIECE "SOLARIS"­

  • Hi friends, 

    Colin and I would like to start a new movie/book club in Lakeview, where we get together for dinner and discuss a novel or short story that turned into one or more movies. I'd like to start with a sci-fi masterpiece, Solaris by Stanisław Lem (1961), which first became a mind-blowing film by Russian master Andrey Tarkovsky, and then an American remake by Steven Soderbergh with George Clooney.

    Solaris is a short novel, available on Amazon as e-book for $2.99. Both films (by Andrey Tarkovsky and Steven Soderbergh) are on Amazon streaming for $3.99.

    For our first meeting we will get together at my place in Lakeview.
