2 p.m.Movie: Eagle in a Cage (1972) 120 mins
This very good period piece film features an active Napoloeon in his final exile after Waterloo on the desolute island of St. Helena. Here we find him brooding and longing for escape. There are diversions to be had however with current and past loves of his life providing some distraction. While a fictionalized account the movie has its basis in the events of the time and provides an interesting portrait of the caged Conqueror in…

10:30 a.m.Book Discussion: The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz
Oscar is a sweet but disastrously overweight ghetto nerd who—from the New Jersey home he shares with his old world mother and rebellious sister—dreams of becoming the Dominican J.R.R. Tolkien and, most of all, finding love. But Oscar may never get what he wants. Blame the fukú—a curse that has haunted Oscar’s family for generations, following them on their epic journey from Santo Domingo to the USA. Encapsulating Dominican-American history, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao opens our eyes to…

2 p.m.Movie: The Dualists 1977 (100 min)
This little known Ridly Scott classic concerns two French officers of Hussars (Light Cavalry) who get themselves involved in a prolonged dual that lasts much of the Napoleonic period. The movie provides a tour-de-force of the time and showcases to excess the code of honor that was often followed by offciers in this period. Beautifully filmed, with two fine actors this is an epic in its own right and provides a wonderful look at h…

2 p.m.Movie: Napoleon 1957 (approx 120 mins)
An epic French film of the 1950s staring Yves Montand and an aged Erich Von Stroheim. Intended to be a homage to the life and career of the French Emperor the film gets a bit carried away at times. Told from the perspective of a contemporary the narration often suffers from exaggeration. Those who are true Bonapartists will no doubt love it! There are some impressive sets and scenes as well as another cameo by Orson Wells towards the end.…
