Join us for Movie Watcher’s Group on Sunday, October 29 at 8 pm ET / 5 pm PT. This month’s movie is Revolver.
During his seven-year stint imprisoned in solitary confinement Jake learns of a specific strategy (referred to as “The Formula”) that is supposed to lead its user to win every game. The Formula itself was discovered by two unnamed men who inhabited adjacent cells on either side of Jake’s own.
The chess expert and the con man plan to leave their cells simultaneously, and promise to take Jake with them. But when they disappear from their cells, they leave Jake behind to serve the remaining two years of his sentence. Upon his release, Jake garners a reputation that leads many casinos to fear his freakishly good ‘luck’, and he is blacklisted by many casinos in fear that he will earn money in them. The Formula applies to any game, and is often exemplified by Jake’s apparent mastery of chess. The story revolves around Jake’s epiphanic awakening, as he learns how to apply the Formula to the ‘game’ of life.
The movie is available on ITunes, VUDU and Youtube or on DVD Netflix plan (not streaming). Watch the movie with Spirit, then come and share your insights with the group.

Watch for common themes, for characters you like or don’t like, for situations that seem to cause discomfort or joy.
