The film for this Sunday, Sept. 27, is Commencement. The story revolves around Christa who has just graduated as valedictorian from a very prestigious university. But her real education begins in the next 36 hours.  Commencement is a funny, romantic and thought-provoking look at three generations of a middle class family caught in the wake of the current fiscal crisis.

As an added bonus, the director of the film, Steve Albrezzi, will be in attendance and will lead a Q&A at the end of the film. You won't want to miss this great opportunity to actually meet and hear from the filmmaker. 

Club Members Having Fun
