Film:  NYAD Trailer

Theme: Goals are achievable – at any age!

What better way to come together (virtually) than with friends, former colleagues, and family to have a bite and watch a stimulating movie.  Our members love the discussion at the end of the film to share reactions and ideas about the film.  If you watch the film at another time, you can still join us for the discussion!

You are encouraged to mark your calendar, so you don’t miss it! As soon as you are registered, I will send out the logon info to you with further instructions.

Future dates:

Tuesday May 7th  –   The Life Ahead

Synopsis:

The remarkable true story of athlete Diana Nyad who, at the age of 60 and with the help of her best friend and coach, commits to achieving her life-long dream: a 177 km open ocean swim from Cuba to Florida.

Nyad had its world premiere at the 50th Telluride Film Festival on September 1, 2023. It was released in select theaters on October 20, 2023, then streamed on Netflix on November 3. The film received positive reviews from critics, with particular praise for the performances of Bening and Foster. For their performances, Bening and Foster received nominations for Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress, respectively, at the 96th Academy Awards, the 81st Golden Globe Awards, and the 30th Screen Actors Guild Awards.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE WILL BE A VIEWING OPTION!

As before, we will be using the Zoom platform for this event. Once you have registered through the Event Registration on the CRTA website or via email, Ron Jeffery will send you the link to the Zoom meeting room along with instructions.
