Movie Night at UUSC

Date(s) - September 25, 2016
5:00 pm - 7:30 pm


Movie Night is Sept. 25 at 5:00 pm in the sanctuary.  The movie will be Varian’s War.  For those who have seen Defying the Nazis: The Sharps’ War, this will weave another story, briefly mentioned in “Defying the Nazis”, from the same time.  Based on a true story, this made-for-cable drama stars William Hurt as Varian Fry, a mild-mannered humanitarian whose determined efforts helped more than 2,000 Jews — including many intellectuals, artists and writers — escape from Vichy France. Nicely rounding out the cast are Lynn Redgrave, Alan Arkin and Julia Ormond as the incisive Miriam Davenport, who conspires with Fry to lead the group to safety.  Cast: William Hurt, Julia Ormond, Matt Craven, more…Pizza will be provided.
