Films, films, films in December!
December 15, 2017Films reviewed for the December Movie meeting were Murder on the Orient Express, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri & Lady Bird . We had a great discussion about these very different movies – not to mention sweets, egg nog, a beautiful tree and a splendid view – all thanks to Gwynne McConkeys’s hospitality. Orient Express received generally tepid reviews with most of us preferring the earlier version and one member noting “the best character was the train.” The fabulous cast and the anger and the pain on display in Three Billboards made it our “critics’ choice” of the evening . We all agreed Frances McDormand’s performance was a standout and Academy Award worthy.
