Faith & Film Friday: Marvin's Room

Join us Friday, February 4th at 6:30 p.m. for our next Faith & Film Lectionary Night. We will be viewing the film, Marvin's Room, in conjunction with the following Sunday's Gospel.

Meryl Streep heads an impeccable all star cast as a woman who comes back in contact with her long estranged sister after 17 years. Bessie (Diane Keaton) gave up her life aspirations to take care of their bedridden father, Marvin (Hume Cronyn), while Lee (Meryl Streep) left home to pursue her own life. But now Bessie has been informed that she has leukemia and requires a bone marrow transplant. She turns to Lee and her wayward kids since they are the only donors that can help, thus precipitating the rocky reunion between the two sisters. Adding to the family dynamics is Lee's son Hank (Leonardo DiCaprio), who finds himself committed to a mental institution after setting fire to his mother's house. This heartfelt drama is a story about the healing power of sacrifice. We look forward to seeing you this Friday!
