mAAc Meets: Movie Discussion – The Chosen
Mon, May 16 @ 7:30 pm
Members of our Mature Active Adult Community (mAAc) are invited to a movie discussion on the film, The Chosen. Danny (Robby Benson) and Reuven (Barry Miller) become good friends, even though they are from different branches of Judaism. Danny, a Hasidic Jew, meets Reuven, a Zionist, while playing stickball. Although they have differences, their friendship grows strong. When they reach college, outspoken support by Reuven's professor father (Maximilian Schell) for a national Jewish state causes conflicts with Danny's conservative father (Rod Steiger), leading to tension for the friends. mAAc members are asked to watch The Chosen prior to our program. It is available to buy or rent online.
