The film will be “The Sum of Us” (1995 Australia) starring Jack Thompson and Russell Crowe. While most movies in the series tend to be documentaries, occasionally there will be dramas which convey the same messages and inspire a lot of conversation in the discussion time after the screening.
The yard sale previously scheduled for that morning will be rescheduled some time in November.
