Family Movie Night: Martian Child

Posted on November 13, 2015. Category:

MovieNightNovA special family event in celebration of National Adoption Month! Bring the kids, friends and family to enjoy FREE pizza, soda and popcorn as we watch and discuss “Martian Child.” John Cusack, Amanda Peet, Joan Cusack and Sophie Okonedo star in this movie about adoption and all its challenges.

“I’m not human,” little Dennis says at one point in “Martian Child.” So he believes. The lonely orphan has convinced himself that he was not abandoned by his parents, but arrived here from Mars. To protect himself against the sun, he walks around inside a cardboard box with a slit cut for his eyes and wears a weight belt around his waist to keep himself from drifting up into the sky.

Dennis attracts the attention of a lonely science-fiction writer named David (John Cusack), a recent widower who can’t get the cardboard box out of his mind and goes back to the orphanage one day with some suntan cream. Eventually, he asks Dennis to come home with him for a test run and decides to adopt him. The movie is the sentimental, sweet and gives real hints of what a child in foster care goes through to cope with the life he has not chosen. This movie will provide lots of heart and lots of discussion points for us as we celebrate foster care and adoption this month. Bring a friend!!! All are welcome.
