Wow, so the month of October just flew past.  Thanks to everyone who came out to support our HORRORFEST, hope you enjoyed yourselves, we enjoyed having you there.  With a new month comes another FILM CLUB film.  This month we will be watching:

Hannah and Her Sisters
Directed By:  Woody Allen
Rated: PG-13

Hannah and Her Sisters is a 1986 American comedy-drama film which tells the intertwined stories of an extended family over two years that begin and end with a family Thanksgiving dinner. The movie was written and directed by Woody Allen, who stars along with Mia Farrow as Hannah, Michael Caine as her husband, and Barbara Hershey and Dianne Wiest as her sisters.  The story is told in three main arcs, with almost all of it occurring during a 12-month period beginning and ending at Thanksgiving parties hosted by Hannah (Mia Farrow) and her husband, Elliot (Michael Caine). Hannah serves as the stalwart hub of the narrative; her own story as a successful actress (a recent success as Nora in A Doll's House) is somewhat secondary, but most of the events of the film connect to her.

 Hannah and Her Sisters won both Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor and Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, the first movie to win both supporting actor awards since Julia in 1977, nearly nine years before. (From Wikipedia)

This is probably one of Woody Allen's best films, right up there with Annie Hall and Manhattan, there is great comedy, plenty of drama, a little romance and infidelity, but overall, a great story.  If you're a fan of Woody Allen's work (or even if you're not!) you should come and check out this film!

Here's the trailer:
