NEW - Amherst Neighbors' Film Discussion Group
Monday, June 28, 2021, 1:00 PM until 2:30 PM
Social and Cultural
Registration cancellations will be accepted
It’s time to get on your movie critic mojo and sign up for Amherst Neighbors’ inaugural film discussion group to discuss the highly acclaimed “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom”, with an all-star cast including Chadwick Boseman in his final role. “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” is an adaptation of an August Wilson play of the same name which tells the story of a turbulent recording session of the real-life Ma Rainey in a Chicago recording studio in the 1920s.
How this works: You watch the movie at home on Netflix, and then come prepared to discuss the film with others on Zoom. We will begin the discussion group with everyone sharing their critical rating of the film (1 to 5 stars) and then we will go on from there. At the end of the session, we will choose a film for our next session. Click here to watch a trailer of the movie Watch Now .
