Next Zoom September 13th

For our next Film Club at 7:00PM on Wednesday, September 13th we will discuss NIMONA.

For our September meet-up we go from a 1970’s battle of the sexes to a battle for survival in a retro futuristic medieval kingdom. When stellar knight Ballister Boldheart is framed for a crime, the only one who can help him prove his innocence is Nimona, a mischievous teen with a taste for mayhem and magic. With the entire kingdom out to get him, the spirited and unpredictable Nimona is the best and only ally Ballister can find. As the lines between heroes, villains, and monsters start to blur, the two of them set out to clear his name with Ballister’s boyfriend, Knight Ambrosius Goldenloin leading the kingdom’s pursuit. This creative animated feature has an old-fashioned European aesthetic mashed up with a modern cityscape, knights in full armory, and a same-sex romance.


Watch Nimona on Netflix.
