QUEEN BEES

Registration Closes Monday, May 6th

Description of Activity:  Join us for a zoom dinner/movie/discussion night on Tuesday May 7th at 6 PM.

Our films are chosen for interesting themes that lend themselves to discussion by viewers.  Most selected have been award winners at film festivals. Even if you have seen the film, joining our discussion after the showing will enhance your viewing of the movie.

Next Up:

Film: Queen Bees

Theme: Controlling our Destiny! (at all stages of life)

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.

Synopsis:

Temporarily forced to stay in a retirement community, a headstrong woman navigates mean cliques, high-stakes bridge games and new relationships.

With a powerhouse cast, Queen Bees fills all the criteria for a light romantic comedy, for once not just directed at a younger generation. It’s a heartwarming ride. Favourite leads Ellen Burstyn, Ann Margaret, Jane Curtin, James Caan and Loretta Devine all have their moments. While reality for many seniors’ homes may not be portrayed, this is a movie about the possibilities of life in those senior years. The supporting cast is fabulous! Christopher Lloyd, Alex Mapa and French Stewart offer much of the comedy and fun. If you want a light romp with strong performances and a group of seniors that range from independent to frisky to nasty, then Queen Bees will fill that need.
