Humans are complicated creatures. And we love the films that capture that complexity with compassion and dignity – and spark some debate.
Last night, 17 of us watched and discussed SCOTTY AND THE SECRET HISTORY OF HOLLYWOOD #separatelytogether. Half of us were inspired by Scotty’s joyous, indomitable will to be of such gracious service to the closeted stars of Hollywood’s Golden Age, while the other half of us were deeply troubled by the trauma of his past and the ways in which his denial of it manifested all through his 95 years of life. It was a fascinating discussion with numerous insights into the human condition and what it means to be “authentic.” Thanks to those who joined us.
The final film in our micro-fest screens tonight at 7:30pm PST. Please join us if you can!
