FDL Movie Night: A Christmas Story

By: Monday December 27, 2010 5:00 pm

Tonight you’re all the guests, as we discuss amongst ourselves one of the classics of the America holiday genre, the 1983 A Christmas Story, directed by Bob Clark. The movie is based on In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash by Jean Shepherd, a collection of semi-fictional stories about growing up in a small Mid-Western town between World Wars. Shepherd is also the narrator.

A Christmas Story centers around Ralphie Parker and his wish for his ultimate Christmas gift, a Red Rider BB gun with a compass in the barrel and a “thing that tells the time.”
