Listen, some of us truly love the breathtaking fantasy of historical costume dramas. Remember the first time you heard the delicate piano soundtrack of the 2006 version of Pride and Prejudice (the one with Kiera Knightley)? Or swooned at the ememies-to-lovers saga of Outlander?
I know. Me too.
Let's just embrace the particular brand of nerd that we are: Costume Drama Enthusiast.
Great. Now that we've named our particular affliction we can celebrate; like when Beth March miraculously recovered from scarlet fever in the many re-tellings of Little Women (Yes, I am living in a fantasy).
This winter, Herrick will be hosting Tea with Historical Film programs where we - you guessed it - drink tea like civilized people and watch historical films filled with dramatic swooning, tragic demise, and so, so many fabulous costumes. Feel free to wear one yourself, if you're feeling festive! Light refreshments will be provided in the form of tea and cookies.
Here's what we will be watching this winter:
December 3rd , 2:00-4:00 (HBH Auditorium) - “Little Women” (1994)
January 21st, 2:00-4:00 (HBH Auditorium) - “Pride and Prejudice” (2006)
February 11th, 2:00-4:00 (HBH Auditorium) - “Becoming Jane” (2007)
