Movie night : Up at the Villa
Sat Apr 28
|Public details: We're reading the book by W. Somerset Maugham in book club this month, so this is a tie-in, related but separate.
Kristin Scott Thomas, Sean Penn, Anne Bancroft
Over a handful of days in 1938, a penniless English widow, on vacation near Florence, considers the marriage proposal of an aging British aristocrat who is the newly-appointed governor of Bengal, accepts a pistol that he presses on her for safety, takes pity on an Austrian refugee, stands up to a Fascist police chief, and gets in harm's way with an American playboy. After a good deed results in tragedy, she must choose between dependability and love, between her reputation and her feelings. Even that choice doesn't work out as she imagined.|
