Movie Moments of Grace
Come together on Friday evenings on Zoom to discuss contemporary films (viewed ahead of time on your own), engaging in small groups about how the film engaged us as human beings at a deep emotional level. In the tradition of Ignatian Spirituality, reflection on this affective response can be a rich source of spiritual insight and self-discovery. The heart of any drama is the moral decisions that face central characters. How characters respond to their challenges, and how we react to the way we respond to the characters, can provide grist for a salutary reflection on our own behavior and our desires to grow as integrated human beings. All are welcome! For further information and to RSVP, please email email@example.com
All are invited to participate in the online version of Movie Moments of Grace via Zoom.
Friday, August 21, 7:30 – 8:30 pm.
Please come to the next Movie Moments of Grace Virtual Film Discussion on the film In Bruges. In Bruges (2008) is the darkly comedic tale of the fates of hit men Ray (Colin Farrell) and Ken (Brendan Gleeson). After a difficult job in London, the team is ordered by their boss Harry (Ralph Fiennes) to cool their heels in Bruges. Very much out of their comfort zones, the men find themselves drawn into increasingly dangerous entanglements with locals, tourists, and a film shoot. Soon, their perspectives on life and death are violently skewed.
There are a number of streaming services on which you can watch In Bruges. If you are a subscriber to HBO Max, HBO Go, HBO, HBO Now, or Direct TV, you can watch the movie free. You can also rent the movie on Apple Itunes, Amazon, Google Play, YouTube, and other platforms for $3.99. Click here for a complete list of streaming options.
RSVPs are required in order to receive the Zoom link. RSVP by 10pm Thursday, August 20th by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org and say YES to MMOG August 21st. You will receive the Zoom link the next morning.
