This week’s film
A unique relationship develops between an eccentric, reclusive novelist and a young, amazingly gifted scholar-athlete. After the novelist discovers that the young athlete is also an excellent writer and secretly takes him on as his protégé, they develop an unlikely friendship. As they learn more about each other, they learn more about themselves, and ultimately, with the help of his new mentor, the basketball star must choose the right path. Village member Mel Washburn will lead a discussion of the film this Saturday at 3 PM.

Please note: because this is an ongoing weekly event, the Zoom link is the same every week.
