The next Movie Lovers Club meetings is scheduled on March 10, 2020 at 1:30pm in the Senior Lounge, on the first floor of the Ridgewood Village Hall.

The movie we are going to watch is "The Year of Living Dangerously" starring  Mel Gibson, Sigourney Weaver and Linda Hunt.
Directed by Peter Weir (1982, 114 min.).

Guy Hamilton is a journalist on his first job as a foreign correspondent.

His apparently humdrum assignment to Indonesia soon turns hot as President Sukarno electrifies the populace and frightens foreign powers. Guy soon is the hottest reporter on the story with the help of his photographer, half- Chinese dwarf Billy Kwan, who has gone native.

 

Guy's affair with diplomat Jill Bryant also helps. Eventually Guy must face some major moral choices and the relationship between Billy and him reaches a crisis at the same time the politics of Indonesia does.
