North Parish Book Group will discuss the movie “Roma”
October 13, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
In keeping with book group tradition, we are alternating books and easily accessible movies for our meetings 7:00 to 8:00 pm the second Wednesday of each month during the church year. For the foreseeable future, we are meeting via Zoom. Those who wish to join us are asked to read the books or see the movies on their own time. “Roma”, which is set in the 1970s Mexico. From its opening frames to its closing ones, it is a masterpiece of cinematic technique, the story of a well-off family told through the eyes of its indigenous maid (Yalitza Aparicio). For a while, the film seems like it will be principally an exercise in visual storytelling. But before it runs its course, Roma will nail you to your seat. It will shock you. It will break your heart and then put it back together again. You will not see a better picture this year.
November’s 10’s book is “The Book of Longings” by Sue Monk Kidd, the fictional story of a young woman named Ana, Judas’ sister, who marries eighteen year old Jesus and moves in with his family.
We have a small but loyal group who join us each month and would love to welcome more to join our discussions. Email Suzanne Adams to be included and receive the Zoom link.
