TUESDAY 3 AUGUST:
"Dream Horse" a comedy/drama tells the inspiring true story of Dream Alliance, an unlikely race horse bred by small town bartender (Toni Collette). With very little money and no experience, she convinces her neighbours to chip in their meagre earnings to help raise Dream and compete with the racing elites. Their investment pays off as Dream rises through the ranks and becomes a beacon of hope in their struggling community.
TUESDAY 6 JULY
"The Courier" delivers a rousingly effective old-school spy adventure elevated by a thrilling fact-based story and Benedict Cumberbatch's nervy central performance. Set during the Cuban missile crisis. Has received excellent reviews from critics and audiences alike.. .
TUESDAY 1 JUNE:
"June Again" Australian movie staring Noni Hazlehurst, Claudia Karvan, Stephen Curry. Not many reviews, but all positive. My favourite summation: "Captures something satisfying amid the bittersweet knowledge of life's impermanence: that self-knowledge and care for others make it worth living." Definitely for our age group.
It was strictly business for this AGM. Held in record time, the meeting was followed by a discussion mostly amongst Group Leaders about the resumption of activities where they were encouraged to voice any reservations they or their group members might have.
