March 13 - CWC Virtual Movie Discussion of "The Goldfinch," led by Paul Hurder

Join us for a spirited discussion of “The Goldfinch,” a 2019 American drama film directed by John Crowley, written by Peter Straughan, and adapted from the 2013 novel of the same name by Donna Tartt. It stars Ansel Elgort as Theodore Decker, whose life changes after his mother dies in a terrorist bombing at a museum and a dying man convinces him to take a famous painting called The Goldfinch from the museum. Oakes Fegley, Aneurin Barnard, Finn Wolfhard, Sarah Paulson, Luke Wilson, Jeffrey Wright, and Nicole Kidman appear in supporting roles.

We will critique the film on its own merits focusing on the various elements of film criticism while also discussing this glimpse into the antiques and art world.

Special guest, Paul Hurder, will lead our discussion. Paul has been a lover of film for most of his life and has been leading film discussion groups for over twenty years. He currently coordinates film study groups at OLLI, the Osher Life Long Learning Institute, a nationwide adult education program affiliated with Northwestern University.

Each participant must obtain and watch the movie through a streaming service or from the library, and view at home prior to the discussion. The confirmation email you receive when you RSVP will have the discussion questions and streaming options outlined.  

This event will be capped at 25 members.
