God of Film : "The Apostle" in the Fireside Room

"In The Apostle, Robert Duvall electrifies, providing a portrait of a volatile man possessed by the sacred. His character E.F., "just call me 'Sonny,'" dominates the film and everyone in it. Like a natural force from the southern heartland, he moves through people's lives with the subtlety of a Gulf Coast thunderstorm. Violent, embracing, and ornery, he transforms those drenched by his words and spun by his swift passage. Charged with God, he is Flannery O'Connor's bull, bringing grace even to those who would avoid it." (Joel Martin) For this performance, Duvall won the Oscar for Best Actor.  

Popcorn and drinks will be provided.
