Girly Movie Night at Nanda's

  • Oct 16, 2012 · 7:00 PM

Hi Girls!

Let's have a movie night!

We talked about this at the last meetup and I will host one for a small group of girls, say 10. Come over at 7, we will watch the movie from 7:30. Yes, it's a weeknight, but come on... We are all adults. Have a cup of joe in the morning! ;-)

If we enjoy this, we could make it a regular thing, an ongoing "series" - and if anyone else would like to host the next one, let me know.

I am hosting this in my home, and I will only send my address to you if I can confirm that you are who you say you are. If you have never been to a Girls' Meetup before, I will have to talk to you on the phone to be on the safe side. Please email me your phone number if you are new, so I can verify you.

So, our theme for the night is Girly Costume Dramas of the 1990's. Yeah, I know... Kind of random, but I think you girls will like these... (If not, we can watch Bridget Jones' Diary for the 12th time... or any of the more modern chick flick.)

I picked 3 classics, in your RSVP please, vote for the one you'd like to see:

The Wings of the Dove

A couple with everything but money. An heiress with everything but love. A temptation no one could resist. Kate Croy's mother was born to wealth and privilege, but she threw it all away to marry Kate's father, a penniless opium addict who admits to having stolen from his wife. After her mother's death, Kate is offered an opportunity to return to the life her mother gave up. There is a condition, however: Kate must sever all of her old ties, not only to her father, but also to her lover, the muck-raking journalist Merton Densher, whom she has promised marriage. Kate reluctantly agrees to this, and in the meantime becomes friendly with "the world's richest orphan," Millie Theale, an American making the Grand Tour. Desperate to see Kate, Merton crashes a party that she and Millie are attending, and Millie is attracted to him. When Kate learns that Millie is dying, she comes up with a plan to have her cake and eat it too...but all does not go as planned.

Angels and Insects

"An Elegant Seduction. An Erotic Deception. A Stunning Revelation."

The movie is a study of an aristocratic family in the Victorian England. William Adamson, a young scientist, is introduced into the aristocratic family Alabaster by reverend Alabaster who is also fascinated by insects. William marries the older daughter of the family and studies the amounts of insects in the garden of the villa. His - for the aristocrats - strange behaviours reveal at the same time their own failures and passions.

The Age of Innocence


"In a world of tradition. In an age of innocence. They dared to break the rules."

Tale of 19th century New York high society in which a young lawyer falls in love with a woman separated from her husband, while he is engaged to the woman's cousin. Society scion Newland Archer is engaged to May Welland, but his well-ordered life is upset when he meets May's unconventional cousin, the Countess Olenska. At first, Newland becomes a defender of the Countess, whose separation from her abusive husband makes her a social outcast in the restrictive high society of late-19th Century New York, but he finds in her a companion spirit and they fall in love.


If you don't like any of these 3, you can suggest another one.

I will have popcorn and soft drinks, if you'd like to have other stuff, grab some.

See you soon!

    3 of the girls who are new haven't contacted me yet... Please send me your phone number so we can talk for a minute! I just left a message for 2 girls... I want to send out the address today, but the last time I sent it out two girls who were new to the group didn't show up and I don't know if they were actually girls... That doesn't make me feel very safe... ;-/ Thanks for understanding.

    Thanks! =)

    • Nanda D.

      Just called you... Will be sending it out today. :)

    Hi Ladies! I'm glad to see so many of you interested... I was afraid you won't like these old(er) movies. :-] So far your votes (that I can see from "behind the scenes") seem split between "The Age of Innocence" and "Angels and Insects". I will get both of them from Netflix or Amazon and we will vote on the spot. :) I wish I could add all of you from the waitlist, but I don't have enough seating space... Sorry! I will host another one soon though! Stay on the waitlist and let's see if you get in. There are always last minute drop outs... Also, two of you emailed me your phone numbers and I will call you on Wednesday. Still waiting for some to send their phone number if we haven't met before. Thanks girls! See you soon. :)
