The festival month ends on Jan. 31 with the Danish film, In a Better World, which won both the Academy Award and Golden Globe for Best Foreign Film in 2010.
This movie explores a family’s choice – and by extension the world’s choice-- between pursuing revenge or forgiveness when two boys and their families are faced with serious school bullying.
February’s selected movies include the powerful documentary called Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry; Woody Allen’s romantic homage to the city of Rome, called To Rome with Love; and the American film called Beasts of the Southern Wild, which is up for 2012’s Best Picture on many critics’ lists.
All residents are invited to attend these BoomerVenture screenings, and there is no charge. The movies are shown at the Andover Senior Center, 30 Whittier Court (behind Town Hall) and start at 7 p.m. with a brief “chat” beforehand. A selection of snacks is available.
