Imagine a time in history where a film about a man losing his job - a job that defines him, giving him pride and respect in his community - explores the desperation and humiliation of demotion but it doesn’t end in a bloodbath.

If you’d like to watch ahead for next week’s film, we will be discussing and reviewing Lawrence Kasdan’s The Big Chill (1983).
