Were you hit by the Recession that rocked the world ?

Review: The Forced Redundancy Film Club - Brian Finnegan - April 2012
What would you do if the world around you was crumbling and you had just lost your job ? Would you start looking for a new one , accept the reality and move on , sit and dwell on the negative or would you start a club ?
One company Qwertec Solutions are letting their staff go one by one due to recession cut-backs , amongst those staff made redundant are five colleagues. Never really spending time together in the past, the five find themselves one night sharing a few rounds of beer and as the night winds down they start talking about E.T and movies.
Meet Katherine, Marcus, Lisa, Jake and Alice - they used to all be employees of Qwertec Solutions, now together the five of them make up The Forced Redundancy Film Club where each of them take turns monthly showing a film of their choice and then of course pulling it to bits. Enjoy movies from Casablanca to Breakfast at Tiffany's , Wizard of Oz to Edward Scissorhands. Over the next year, these five will discover and learn what it means to have real friendships and that no matter what tragedy or problem they have going on in their lives they will always have each other and that the foundation of good friendships is strong even if it takes you a little bit longer to realise.
As a big movie fan, I really enjoyed this book as the majority of films featured I have seen plenty of times and it actually made me look at the films in a different light as well and go , oh I never thought of it like that.
