At The Crandell: ‘Book Club’ & ‘Let the Sunshine In’

It’s Friday, and that means new movies at the Crandell Theatre in Chatham. Opening today is Book Club, and Sunday’s matinee is Let the Sunshine In.

Book Club

Diane (Diane Keaton) is recently widowed after 40 years of marriage. Vivian (Jane Fonda) enjoys her men with no strings attached. Sharon (Candice Bergen) is still working through a decades-old divorce. Carol’s (Mary Steenburgen) marriage is in a slump after 35 years. Four lifelong friends’ lives are turned upside down to hilarious ends when their book club tackles the infamous Fifty Shades of Grey. From discovering new romance to rekindling old flames, they inspire each other to make their next chapter the best chapter.

Let The Sunshine In

Juliette Binoche delivers a luminous performance in the deliciously witty, sensuously romantic new film from acclaimed director Claire Denis (White Material). Isabelle (Binoche) is a divorced Parisian painter searching for another shot at love, but refusing to settle for the parade of all-too-flawed men who drift in and out of her life. There’s a caddish banker (Xavier Beauvois) who, like many of her lovers, happens to be married; a handsome actor (Nicolas Duvauchelle) who’s working through his own hang-ups; and a sensitive fellow artist (Alex Descas) who’s skittish about commitment. What reads like a standard romantic comedy premise is transformed, in the hands of master filmmaker Denis, into something altogether deeper, more poignant, and perceptive about the profound mysteries of love.

Claverack Library Program – ‘Helping a Grieving Friend’

Claudia Coenen will lead a conversation about how to help someone who is grieving.

All of us experience grief at various times in our lives, and it is often challenging to know how to help someone else. How do we help a friend in need of support when someone they love dies? What do we say? What do we do?

Claudia Coenen, a certified grief counselor in Hudson, is the author of ‘Shattered by Grief: Picking up the Pieces to become WHOLE Again’, and the Karuna Cards, a deck of creative prompt cards for grief processing. After the death of her husband in 2005, she studied thanatology, the science of death, dying and bereavement, in an effort to understand how people grieve, and how we can help each other. Claudia has worked in hospice with patients and families, in a trauma center as an advocate and grief specialist, and welcomes clients who are coping with death, illness, divorce or other difficult life transitions.

Claudia Claudia has presented workshops and talks nationally on the uses of creative expression in grief counseling, as well as helping clinicians cope with secondary grief and the stresses of working in the field of grief and mental health.

Bring your questions; stay for refreshments.

DATE/TIME:
Saturday June 16 2018: 4pm

LOCATION:
Claverack Free Library
629 Rt 23B
Claverack, NY
