Inspired by Hollywood - February 18th
Inspired by Hollywood
For six weeks each winter, our Sunday gathering draws inspiration from Hollywood, bringing the innovation, challenges, and provocation of the silver screen into our Perspective(s). It is a wonderful way to engage newcomers so don't hesitate to bring your friends to explore and discuss these amazing films.
In January, we began our annual exploration of Academy Award "Best Picture" nominees through the ages. If you missed us last week or would like to catch up on any service from this series, feel free to listen to our
West Hill United Podcast.
This Sunday we will take a look at the 1994 Best Picture nominee, The Shawshank Redemption
"Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins) is sentenced to two consecutive life terms in prison for the murders of his wife and her lover and is sentenced to a tough prison. However, Andy maintains he didn't commit the crimes. While there, he forms a friendship with Red (Morgan Freeman), experiences brutality of prison life, adapts, helps the warden, etc., all in 19 years." - Google movies
