If you enjoy seeing movies and love an opportunity to discuss the movies with other movie enthusiasts, then you should consider joining Critics Corner. Our next meeting will be on Zoom, Friday, January 8th, at 7:00PM. We will discuss and rate the following movies:
The Queen’s Gambit – (Limited series on Netflix) A nine year-old orphan Beth Harmon is quiet, sullen, and by all appearances unremarkable. That is, until she plays her first game of chess. Her senses grow sharper, her thinking clearer, and for the first time in her life she feels herself fully in control. By the age of sixteen, she's competing for the U.S. Open championship. But as Beth hones her skills on the professional circuit, the stakes get higher, her isolation grows more frightening, and the thought of escape becomes all the more tempting. Based on the book by Walter Tevis.
Unorthodox – (Limited series on Netflix) The series follows a young woman brought up in an ultra-Orthodox community in Brooklyn's Williamsburg district who strikes out for Berlin, leaving behind an arranged marriage and tight-knit faith community in part to pursue her goal discovering her path.
