Glenn is Discussion Leader @ The Grand

0023ae606f170b4f9d631cThis Saturday, May 2, I will be the discussion leader at the Grand Theater for IS ANYBODY THERE?, starring Michael Caine, following the 4:15pm screening. Any of you who might be interested in attending that discussion would be more than welcome. As David, Ron, Mohsen, and Idrys can attest, it is wonderful to have club members and friends be part of the discussion group.

Is Anybody There?

Opening Date: May 1, 2009
Set in 1980s seaside England, this is the story of Edward, an unusual ten year old boy growing up in an old people’s home run by his parents. Whilst his mother struggles to keep the family business afloat, and his father copes with the onset of mid-life crisis, Edward is busy tape-recording the elderly residents to try and discover what happens when they die. Increasingly obsessed with ghosts and the afterlife, Edward’s is a rather lonely existence until he meets Clarence, the latest recruit to the home, a retired magician with a liberating streak of anarchy. Is There Anybody There? tells the surprising, touching story of this odd couple – a boy and an old man – facing life together, with Edward learning to live in the moment and Clarence coming to terms with the past.


…it’s impossible to understate the effectiveness of Caine’s work here. — David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews

Hope to see some of you on Saturday!
