Flick of the Week
Staff Pick: Amy Knesel
Steven Spielberg filters J. M. Barrie’s Peter Pan through a distinctly 1990s sensibility in Hook. Peter Pan has become Peter Banning (Robin Williams), a 40-year-old mergers and acquisitions lawyer with a permanent scowl on his face and a cellular phone in his belt. Banning has lost any memory of being Peter Pan, and he is also in danger of losing his wife Moira (Caroline Goodall) and two children, Jack (Charlie Korsmo) and Maggie (Amber Scott).
Here’s how it works:
- Click here to register for the Flick of the Week (FREE with a suggested donation of $5 per family)
- You’ll receive an email with a link to where you can find the film online, along with some other curated YouTube clips to add to the family fun!
- You’ll be invited to a private Zoom conversation about the film so you can ask questions and share your opinions. The call will take place on Sunday, April 12 at 2:00 pm.
Every week while we are closed, we will have a new recommendation to share with you, along with a Sunday Zoom conversation. Please consider making a donation when you register. Your support will help OGT remain a vibrant center for cinema culture once this turbulent period is behind us. The show must go on—and it will, thanks to you.
