Netflix party; Captain Fantastic (2016)

Starts Thu 23rd Apr 2020 at 08:00
Ends at 10:00
Cost FREE
Type IN-PERSON Event

Location: Quarantine

We will be hosting a netflix party tomorrow at 8pm! We are watching Captain Fantastic (2016)!

Here is the synopsis; Ben Cash (Viggo Mortensen), his wife Leslie and their six children live deep in the wilderness of Washington state. Isolated from society, Ben and Leslie devote their existence to raising their kids -- educating them to think critically, training them to be physically fit and athletic, guiding them in the wild without technology and demonstrating the beauty of co-existing with nature. When Leslie dies suddenly, Ben must take his sheltered offspring into the outside world for the first time.

This is relevant to everyone staying isolated during COVID-19, and also to a third year module AN341 - Conspiracies. We have read Tara Westover's member "Educated", which tells the story of her childhood in a survivalist family. So please get the popcorn out, grab some sweets and watch along! The link will be posted here and on MuLife!
