Movie of the Month (September 2018)

In September 2018 we chose a movie for you:

The Big Chill

Directed by: Lawrence Kasdan
Starring: Tom Berenger, Glenn Close, Jeff Goldblum
Year: 1983
Running time: 105 minutes

PlotThe story is about Cooper family who receive the news of their friend Alex’s suicide. At the funeral the Coopers, meet with college friends and then they all go to Coopers’ vacation house, where they stay for the weekend sharing they stories.

The movie was suggested by our member Patrizia Zeppegno who said:

It is a beautiful movie in which the group and the individual have to face the grief for a friend. This tragic event elicits different feelings in each one: sadness, regret, psychological pain, guilt, rage. The relationships among group members may also represent different feelings of the single survivor. As my master Eugenio Torre teaches “bereavement is a ‘crisis’ that may offer the chance to think about the past and go on throughout the future”.


Thanks to Patrizia Zeppegno
