Tuesday, March 14 at 6:30 p.m.
RSVP: Sallie Smith
A casual group of movie-lovers gather on the second Tuesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. to watch a film followed by a brief discussion.
The Keeper tells the incredible true story of Bert Trautmann, a German soldier, and prisoner of war, who against a backdrop of British post-war protests and prejudice, secures the position of goalkeeper at Manchester City, and in doing so becomes a footballing icon.
His signing causes outrage among thousands of fans, many of them Jewish. But Bert finds support from an unexpected direction, Rabbi Alexander Altman. Bert’s love for an English woman, Margaret carry him through the turbulence, and he wins over even his harshest opponents by winning the 1956 FA Cup final, playing with a broken neck to secure victory. But fate will soon twist the knife for Bert and Margaret when their love and loyalty for each other is put to the ultimate test. The Keeper is an extraordinary love story between an English woman and a German prisoner of war, who together overcome prejudice, outrage, and personal tragedy.
Invite your friends and family to join us for this excellent film.
