    Movie for October: "Nicky's Family"   

    In 1988 a BBC talk show, “That’s Life,” invited Nicholas Winton, then 79, to sit in the front row of the studio audience while his good works were praised. He had saved the lives of 669 children, most of them Jewish, in Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia with his own personal Kindertransport. The woman sitting next to him at the show was one of them. And if you don’t feel teary when Mr. Winton learns on the air that virtually everyone in the audience that day had been one of those children, you have no heart.

    The scene appears in “Nicky’s Family,” an enthralling documentary by Matej Minac that artfully tells the story of how Mr. Winton, now 104, a British stockbroker, gave up a 1938 skiing holiday to answer a friend’s request for help in Prague and didn’t stop helping until the war’s beginning stopped him. He worked frantically, placing youngsters in English homes; put away photos and documents about his project; and told nobody, not even his wife. She eventually discovered his scrapbooks in the attic; his secrecy is never fully explained.

    With lovely cinematography and lively editing, the story is told in vintage black-and-white film clips that seem oddly fresh; present-day interviews; and the kind of dramatic re-creation video usually seen on basic-cable crime or ghost shows. But those scenes, shot in muted colors with hints of sepia, are surprisingly evocative.

    The Canadian journalist Joe Schlesinger narrates. He, too, was one of the 669.  

    As always, a full dinner will be prepared by our own, Rabbi Sternfield.

    Cost is only $10 per person.

    Rabbi Michael Sternfield is our resident chef for this dinner and film series which occurs monthly at Temple Beth El. This month’s film will be “Zelig” (USA) one of Woody Allen's classics. Zelig is a 1983 American mockumentary film written and directed by Woody Allen and starring Allen and Mia Farrow. Allen plays Leonard Zelig, a nondescript enigma who, out of his desire to fit in and be liked, takes on the characteristics of strong personalities around him. The film, presented as a documentary, recounts his intense period of celebrity in the 1920s and includes analyses from contemporary intellectuals. The event begins with a delicious dinner. Cost is $10 pp for dinner and movie. Please RSVP

    Rabbi Michael Sternfield is our resident chef for this dinner and film series which occurs monthly at Temple Beth El. This month’s film is The Impossible Spy... The British/US co-production The Impossible Spy is based on the life and career of Israeli undercover agent Elie Cohen. The story begins in 1959, with the Egyptian-born Cohen (John Shea) being recruited by the Israeli Mossad. Cohen, a mild-mannered Jewish accountant, wants no part of espionage, but goes along with his superior's plans to send him into Syria under an assumed identity. The reluctant spy is so successful in his cover that he is nearly elected Syrian minister of defense! What finally does happen results in the death of Cohen in 1965--and the birth of an enduring legend.

    The event begins with a delicious dinner. Cost is $10 pp for dinner and movie. Please RSVP
