Let's talk about movies! Join us for a screening of Prospect (2018, R) starring Pedro Pascal and Sophie Thatcher. After the movie our group will have a short discussion and select what we will watch next month. There will be snacks!

A teenage girl and her father travel to a remote alien moon, aiming to strike it rich. They've secured a contract to harvest a large deposit of the elusive gems hidden in the depths of the moon's toxic forest. But there are others roving the wilderness and the job quickly devolves into a fight to survive. Forced to contend not only with the forest's other ruthless inhabitants, but with her own father's greed-addled judgment, the girl finds she must carve her own path to escape. "The defiantly lo-fi "Prospect" is a smartly entertaining throwback that doesn't need a Marvel movie's worth of CGI to make its point." - Cary Darling, Houston Chronicle
