About the Book
In a small Ontario town, seven women gather to watch movies and share their lives.
From the Publisher
In a small Ontario town, seven women gather occasionally to watch movies on video. Gilaine E. Mitchell skillfully and sensitively presents the story of each woman in a novel that speaks to several generations of women.
"We don't see ordinary women in the movies very often, but in Film Society they and their funny poignant stories are the stars of the show."
Mitchell has used actual familiar places in her story, which takes place mainly in and around Stirling, just north of Belleville, Ontario. Sadie is the main storyteller. Life revolves around monthly get-togethers with Sadie and her six closest female friends, to watch a selected movie on video. Several chapters are dedicated to each of these friends and their relationships with their male partner -- or partners. This is a well-written novel, but the content may not be to everyone's liking.
