Book Club - 2015 - 6/10
The ladies start their book club in the late 1930’s, early 1940’s.
Over sixty years, they have been together, many of them for longer than their marriages.
Along the way, they discuss pivotal books, historical highlights, life in Washington DC.
As a documentary, this is hardly incisive.
Yet as the “human experience” this is life-affirming.
Clearly, the ladies are from a much earlier era, when people stayed put and held tight to each other.
Only caveat with the film is that the ladies’ names were not indicated while they spoke.
