Since we are doing a book club online, why not do a movie screening and discussion online while we are at it?
Someone recently left a comment about the PBS series, Frontier House, which I saw part of when it was on TV a few years back. The series takes three families and exposes them to what it was like to live on a homestead in 1883 Montana. They spare no one from the vagaries of 19th century living for six months.
For those of you fantasizing about life on a homestead this will give you a glimpse of what it really takes to survive on your own. Of course, this is a reality show, albeit for PBS, but it's still edited for entertainment in addition to the educational element. In other words, take it with a grain of salt.
You can get the two disc series from Netflix, Blockbuster or you may try your public library (I know mine carries it).
Anyone interested in doing a group movie screening - it's filmed in three parts so there would be three discussion posts.
