In order to help keep our community healthy, we won’t be showing movies at the Grange this fall. Instead, the Home Together Fall Film Series has picked four movies you can watch anytime on your own at home and then join a REEL TALK via Zoom. You can listen to a provocative discussion about the film between two special guests and submit your own questions. We can be Home Together with great movies and lively speakers until we can be together in person in front of the big screen at the Grange again.


The film streams on HULU.

Palm Springs, nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the 2020 Sundance International Film Festival.

“This is one of the funniest movies of the year AND one of the most romantic movies as well.” – Chicago Sun-Times

When carefree Nyles and reluctant maid of honor Sarah have a chance encounter at a Palm Springs wedding, things get complicated as they are unable to escape the venue, themselves, or each other. But when their impromptu tryst is thwarted by a surreal interruption, Sarah must join Nyles in embracing the idea that nothing really matters, and they begin wreaking spirited havoc on the wedding celebration.

“Love comes with other painful things attached: regret, fear, mistrust. Palm Springs explores it all.” —

REEL TALK Speakers: Jim Shepard has written eight novels, five story collections, and several books on film, including The Tunnel at the End of the LightEssays on Movies and Politics. His screenplay for the movie The World to Come premiered at the Venice Film Festival in 2020.
