TX Speaker Series Presents Peter Roussel
May 7 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15 online and $18 at the door
This is Peter Roussel. He currently live in Houston, Texas. He formerly lived in Washington, DC where I spent 1981 - 1987 serving in the White House as a Special Assistant and Deputy Press Secretary to President Reagan. Prior to that, he first came to Washington as Press Secretary to a then-Congressman from Houston named George Bush and served as his Press Secretary when he was in Congress, when he ran for Senate in 1970; and when he was US Ambassador to the United Nations. Later he had my first tour of duty under President Ford from 1974 - 1976.
One of my favs!
Terms of Endearment (1983)
Aurora and Emma are mother and daughter who march to different drummers. Beginning with Emma's marriage to a weak man, Aurora works hard to control her daughter throughout her life. The movie covers several years of their lives as each finds different reasons to go on living and find joy. Aurora's interludes with Garrett Breedlove, retired astronaut and next door neighbor are quite striking. In the end, different people show their love in very different ways.
May 14 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $7 online or at the door starting at 6 p.m.
Imitation of Life (1959)
May 21 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $7 online or at the door starting at 6 p.m.
Aspiring actress Lora Meredith meets Annie Johnson a homeless black woman at Coney Island and soon they share a tiny apartment. Each woman has an intolerable daughter, though Annie's little girl Sarah Jane, is by far the worse. Neurotic and obnoxious, Sarah Jane doesn't like being black; since she's light-skinned, she spends the rest of the film passing as white, much to her mother's heartache and shame. Lora, meanwhile, virtually ignores her own daughter in a single-minded quest for stardom.
Mildred Pierce (1945)
May 28 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $7 online or at the door starting at 6 p.m.
