Grief Goes to the Movies - Ordinary People

Tuesday, October 29, 2019


Join us as we learn, explore, and discuss grief and its impact on our lives through the use of popular films. Movies are followed by a discussion of food for thought questions to explore grief-related themes observed in the film. Free and open to the public. Please make a note of movie ratings as most films are not appropriate for children. Light refreshments will be provided.

Ordinary People portrays the significant impact loss has on surviving family members. Tormented by guilt following the death of his older brother, Buck, in a sailing accident, alienated teenager Conrad Jarrett (Timothy Hutton) attempts suicide. Returning home following an extended stay in a psychiatric hospital, Conrad tries to deal with his mental anguish and also reconnect with his mother, Beth (Mary Tyler Moore), who has grown cold and angry, and his emotionally wounded father, Calvin (Donald Sutherland), with the help of his psychiatrist, Dr. Berger (Judd Hirsch).
