And to celebrate Turkey Day, on Nov. 29 BoomerVenture will screen a favorite Thanksgiving movie, Pieces of April. Featuring a top-notch cast, and starring Katie Holmes, this movie follows the travails of April, the black sheep in the family, who invites her estranged family to Thanksgiving dinner in her small cramped New York apartment. Not surprisingly, problems with cooking and family interactions ensue. This comedy/drama “sparkles with acerbic wit, original characters and genuine heart,” according to Variety.
BoomerVenture invites all residents to attend; there is no charge. The Thursday night BoomerVenture program shows the movies at the Andover Senior Center, 30 Whittier Court, behind Town Offices. Showings start at 7 p.m. -- with a brief “chat” beforehand. A selection of snacks is available.
