Tuesdays with Morrie

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Movie Info
Detroit Free Press sports columnist Mitch Albom (Hank Azaria) has found success and popularity in his occupation, but emotionally and spiritually he is bankrupt. While watching television one night, he comes across an episode of the news show Nightline and learns that his former university professor Morrie Schwartz (Jack Lemmon) is battling A.L.S. -- better known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. At first, Mitch is reluctant to pay his former mentor a visit, since, at his graduation ceremony, Mitch promised to remain in contact with Morrie but failed to make good on that promise. Mitch eventually overcomes his uneasiness and, to his surprise, finds a very warm welcome from Morrie. The two begin to discuss the issues of happiness, life, and death, and they soon begin to meet on a weekly basis as Mitch reassumes the role of Morrie's student.

Running Time: Approx. 89 min
Directed By: Mick Jackson
Written By: Mitch Albom, Thomas Rickman

    I usually find films full of dialogue to be draggy... not this one... makes me do a lot of soul searching... I enjoyed it... and the company, thanks Petrine, Kelvin and all who made this a successful event.

      I would really love to, I have two open house to attend tomorrow. It would be a stretch to attend because I would be from Pasir Ris after Changi Rd, but if Pasir Ris is cancelled, it would be cool to drop by over at Tanjong Rhu... :)

  • Marrie L.

    I will probably buy some munchies to share tomorrow... will be nice if some of you do the same. ..

    I'd love to take up the last spot but the RSVP has closed. Do let me know if I can attend! :)

  • Marrie L.

    Hi, I would like to come for the screening too but with the current health situation I am in, I always have 2 companions with me, my sister and my friend who helps me drive my car. So we are going to hit above 20 pax. If that is ok, I would love to join, if it is too squeezy then maybe another time. Kelvin, thanks for hosting this event. Kunal, thanks for offering too. You people are the best :)

  • Kelvin K

    Hi, I can host this screening if it's on Sunday, 11th Aug.
    I have got a big screen tv and my housemate is away this coming Sunday. I can have up to 20+ folks in the condo.

    My place is located on Tanjong Rhu and the closest MRT is Stadium (on the yellow Circle Line). My place is a short scenic walk from the MRT station.

    4 · August 7, 2013

    • Kelvin K

      I'm fine with that. Please confirm with the other members if they would still like to show up for the screening at that time so that I can give directions to my place. I suggest a group email be sent out because not everyone checks this event page.

      Meet at Stadium MRT at 4pm? SUNDAY 11th Aug. The Condo is Sanctuary Green, a short walk from Stadium MRT. My mobile is 84440774. Please communicate via mobile just in case I don't check this page. Please inform members since it seems like a lot of them are keen on watching this movie and this is happening quite last minute. No one offers a place till 48 hours left and I offer a place and now someone else offers as well. So all very last minute!

    Dear Marrie, I'm very sorry to hear about your injury. And u are very brave to sound so chirpy about it. Please take good care, wish u a speedy recovery, & don't worry about other things -- just focus on resting & getting well quickly!

    1 · August 6, 2013

    • Marrie L.

      Thanks Hwee Hoon. This had been a big wake up call to my unhealthy lifestyle and diet. I am just afraid that after this ordeal, I will be a little insufferable to my friends as I start policing and nagging people around me. I have many many friends who are walking time bombs :)

  • Marrie L.

    Petrine, most of my 2nd half weekends for August are occupied and earlier half I am home recuperating from my hospitalization. I will out of Singapore on the 7th Sept weekend so if we were to do the screening in my office, the earliest would be 14th Sept. I hate to disappoint such an enthusiastic group :) So unless some else can offer a better alternative, we will do it on the 14th Sept. at my office. Do ensure though (for security and privacy) that the exact venue would be given only through phone sms so let's get everyone to forward their numbers to you before the screening date. tks Marrie

      I am sorry to hear... i didnt know what happened but i pray for ur speedy recovery. :)

      I had a minor stroke after a strenuous 2 hours Thai massage in Bangkok. Hospitalized for 7 days. Discharged and got admitted again at midnight, within 4 days right after I conducted the rock n roll class, this time for Bell's Palsy... Did so many blood tests, 2 CTscans, 2 MRIs, ultrasound and a lumbar puncture. Taking it very easy for a while :)

    It is a good time to use the "Mass Email Spam" to everyone attending on who could provide a place to crash... hehe..

  • Hwee H.

    Great choice. I've read the book before & it is very touching. If u have found a venue which can take more than 20 people, please let us know. Thanks!

    1 · July 21, 2013

    • John D.

      Me too, love the book. Shy to admit, but its the only book I've read completely. Time is very precious to me, but this was worth it. ;)
