NoVES Saturday Afternoon at the Movies

When: Saturday, June 27, 2020 3:00 – 5:30 PM, EDT


The sixth NoVES Movie Series Discussion event will be held this Saturday.  This is a movie showing via Zoom followed by a discussion.  It will start by broadcasting the movie so that we may watch it together. The movie itself is 1 hour 41 minutes.

If you have already seen the movie, you may join the Zoom Meeting at around 4:40 PM to join the discussion.

EVENT DETAILS:  Gifted (2017) PG-13

I was looking for an uplifting movie and I think that Gifted fits the bill.  The movie depicts complicated family relationships and how difficult it can be to do what you believe is right. 

IMDB includes this summary of the movie:


Frank Adler (Chris Evans) is a single man raising a child prodigy - his spirited young niece Mary (Mckenna Grace) in a coastal town in Florida. Frank's plans for a normal school life for Mary are foiled when the seven-year-old's mathematical abilities come to the attention of Frank's formidable mother Evelyn (Lindsay Duncan) whose plans for her granddaughter threaten to separate Frank and Mary. Octavia Spencer plays Roberta, Frank and Mary's landlady and best friend. Jenny Slate is Mary's teacher, Bonnie, a young woman whose concern for her student develops into a connection with her uncle as well. Written by Fox Searchlight Pictures

The Zoom link for the movie showing and discussion is included below.

I look forward to showing this movie and the discussion.


Randy Best is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
