The public is invited to see and discuss the film “Glory” on Sunday, May 20 at City Hall as part of a free movie series sponsored by the City’s Community of Character Committee. The PG-13 rated version of this film begins at 2 p.m. and highlights “moral courage,” Mission Viejo’s character quality for the month of May.
Considered one of the best movies ever made about the American Civil War, the film relates the true story of the War’s first black combat unit. The moral courage of the 54th Regiment and of its leader, Colonel Robert Gould Shaw, is powerfully displayed by a superb cast. The film won three Oscars, including Best Supporting Actor by Denzel Washington.
Character educators Elaine Portnoy and Bob Hayes will lead a brief discussion following the film which will be shown on a theater-size screen with theater-style seating and surround-sound at 200 Civic Center, just across from the Mission Viejo Library.
