Come on over to the Chapter House on Sat., Feb. 23, at 4 PM, for snacks and a movie. We’ll watch a favorite of Pastor Chris, “A Walk in the Clouds,” and also eat junk (or healthy stuff if you bring it). (Actually, bring some things to nosh on, healthy or junky).
One comfort note: The chairs at the Chapter House may not be comfy enough for you. Think about bringing a seat cushion, or maybe a bean bag chair.
About the film:
A Walk in the Clouds is a romantic drama with an excellent cast including Keanu Reeves and Anthony Quinn. A young soldier returns home from World War II looking to settle down and start a family with the woman he impulsively married just before enlisting. After learning she is not what he hoped her to be, he heads north alone to Sacramento in search of work.
Along the way he meets a beautiful young woman heading home from college to her family vineyard to help with the harvest. When he learns she is pregnant and was abandoned by her boyfriend, he offers to stand in as her husband so she can face her Old-World domineering father. During his stay at the vineyard, they begin to fall in love and face the angry rejection of her father together.
The film is based on the 1942 Italian film “Four Steps in the Clouds.”
Runs 1 hour 42 minutes.
