Friday Night at the Movies: Ordinary People

Ordinary PeopleA 1980 release and Robert Redford’s directorial debut, Ordinary People is quoted as “the painfully emotional story of the disintegration of a perfect family.” The film features outstanding performances from Mary Tyler Moore, Donald Sutherland, Judd Hirsch, Timothy Hutton, and Elizabeth McGovern in a heart-wrenching portrayal of a family trying to come to terms with the death of one son and attempted suicide of the surviving son. The movie garnered an Academy Award for Best Picture and earned three other Oscars as well. Pastor Jim McDonald will lead the post-movie discussion.

Soft drinks, popcorn, dessert and coffee will be provided; a $2 donation is suggested.
