ACG Movie Club Gathering
Venue: Prêt à Manger Coffee shop, 237 Tottenham Court Road (Opposite Odeon Cinema, two minutes walk from Tott. Ct. Rd tube)
Our nominated film for February is the film HACKSAW RIDGE, a tough WW2 drama directed by Mel Gibson, starring Andrew Garfield. It tells the story of Desmond Doss, a conscientious objector who believed that the war was just but that killing was wrong, and so refused to carry a weapon.
Owing to its subject matter it has been described in a recent edition of Premier Christianity magazine as ‘perhaps the most Christian film ever made in Hollywood’. It does contain quite graphic battle scenes, but is a 15 certificate.
ACG members should see it over the next three weeks at their local cinemas then meet to discuss it at a central London location over coffee and pastries. The above venue is suggested. If you intend to come, give the office a quick ring - 020 7407 1881 on the day, or send an e-mail.
From January 2017, we are launching the ACG MOVIE CLUB - a new initiative that all members within reach of London can take part in. Each month, we will be nominating a new film, which we invite you all to go and see at a time and place to suit you within a three week window. We will then gather together on a midweek evening at a convenient central London location for coffee and a full discussion about the film.
