This Month: “Downton Abbey: A New Era": Return to the world of Downton Abbey, in 1928, where the upper class Crawleys and their host of servants are facing a life on the cusp of change in two different countries. In England, the excitement and romance of the film industry has invaded the usually reserved estate, while in France, the previously unknown past exploits of the ailing matriarch of the family reveal both tremendous opportunities…and shocking possibilities. Amid all the turmoil, questions, and discoveries, only one thing is clear: Downton Abbey will never be the same again.

Film Discussion Club will meet on Friday, September 23 at 10:30 AM.
