Movie Discussion Group: Another Mother’s Son (4:00)
Monday, July 20 from 4:00 - 5:00 p.m.
Join Beacon Hill Village member Joan Doucette for a small group discussion about the film Another Mother’s Son (available to stream on Amazon Prime).
The discussion will take place via Zoom on Monday, July 20 from 4:00 - 5:00 p.m. Members are encouraged to watch Another Mother's Son on Amazon Prime prior to joining the conversation. Registration is required.
Based on the true story of Louisa Gould, Another Mother’s Son (2017) is set during World War II on the Nazi-occupied island of Jersey. Lou took in an escaped Russian POW and hid him over the war's course. The tension mounts as it becomes clear that Churchill will not risk an assault to recapture the British soil, and the island-community spirit begins to fray under pressures of hunger, occupation and divided loyalty. Against this backdrop, Lou fights to preserve her family's sense of humanity and to protect the Russian boy as if he was her own.
