What: Film - German film, Lives of Others - In 1984 East Berlin, an agent of the secret police, conducting surveillance on a writer and his lover, finds himself becoming increasingly absorbed by their lives. Perhaps appropriate for our time. From Wikipedia: The Lives of Others (German: Das Leben der Anderen) is a 2006 German drama film, marking the feature film debut of filmmaker Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck about the monitoring of East Berlin residents by agents of the Stasi, the GDR's secret police. It stars Ulrich Mühe (who died within a year of the film's release) as Stasi Captain Gerd Wiesler, Ulrich Tukur as his superior Anton Grubitz, Sebastian Koch as the playwright Georg Dreyman, and Martina Gedeck as Dreyman's lover, a prominent actress named Christa-Maria Sieland.

The group can vote on a film each week and majority rules. Bring your own film and share it with the group.
The idea is that some of you might be watching films at home. Why not turn that into something more social that promotes further connection. We need that right now in our world.
And so, onwards! And may the power of movies to bring magic into our lives grow ever more!
