Okay so tonight we will have two to choose from: Either Grey Gardens which is a crazy film about a couple of eccentric women and well it just looks like an amazing film- I don't like to know too much about a film before I see it so I imagine you don't as well.
The other is a dark and much less humorous look at another coal mining operation in Kentucky where union busting led to several murders. Harlan County U.S.A. looks like a remarkable film. I haven't seen it but the reviews appear trustworthy.
Depending on the room we'll see one of these- fun and whimsical liberty gone wild, or jaw dropping drama of worker oppression... hmmm maybe both?
The influenza pandemic of 1918-1919 killed more people than the Great War, known today as World War I (WWI), at somewhere between 20 and 40 million people. It has been cited as the most devastating epidemic in recorded world history. More people died of influenza in a single year than in four-years of the Black Death Bubonic Plague from 1347 to 1351. Known as "Spanish Flu" or "La Grippe" the influenza of 1918-1919 was a global disaster.
This film really puts things in perspective. Starts at 7pm on the nose.
