Between us we had seen a range of different films over the Summer break – “Little Women”, “Jumanji”, “Bombshell”, and some of the great oldies such as “On Golden Pond”. And while most people enjoy a range of different genre of film, it seems that Science Fiction was the least favoured. Maybe there is an opportunity to challenge those who are not in favour of these to attend one and then contribute an alternative view to the discussion.
We also had a brief discussion about the role of language in films, with many not liking the tendency for bad language that seems to be the fashion in some current films. It was suggested though that in some cases it can be appropriate to the story or character.
Overall, a great start to the new U3A year.
The film we chose for our March class (11 March) is “JoJo Rabbit” – a satire set during the Second World War. The full March program listing the screening times for “JoJo Rabbit” should be available soon, at http://bpacc.com.au/benalla-cinema/#coming-soon.
