Hello peeps!

Apologies for not organizing a January event yet, I had a very unexpected&prolonged visit to my home country, though.
This month has proved pretty well-off for good films (amazing Jojo Rabbit, Waves, Protected content , Bombshell, Knives-out, Little Women, among others)
I assume u might've already had the pleasure of watching many of them, however, there seems to be still one little gem, freshly released, which I hope u haven't seen just yet😏 I'm talking about Just Mercy. It's a dramatic story based on factual events, it's got a stellar cast and... 99% (audience) on RT👌🙂 Here's more:

Many films critics and audiences alike seem to be raving about it, check out just a few examples:
The Times: "It's never less than engrossing".
Rolling Stone: "The real battle is still to be won. That's the power of Just Mercy. It demands that you bear witness"
New York Post: "Profoundly moving and, at times, almost unbearably sad..."
The Guardian: "Just Mercy is a straightforward, no-frills drama that does have an undeniably emotive effect"

As we don't have much time before it's too late to still call it a 'January event', our screening is gonna take place already this coming Wed, sorry for such short notice!
After the film everybody's more than welcome, as usual, to join in for after-screening discussions and our general catch-up🙂

Very much looking forward to seeing you all!
