Groundhog Day

“Wednesday Movie Club” at Window on America center Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine had a session devoted to Groundhog Day in the USA.
A recent US comedy ‘Groundhog Day’ was presented to all who wish to improve their language skills.
Groundhog Day is a 1993 American fantasy comedy-drama film directed by Harold Ramis, starring Bill Murray, Andie MacDowell, and Chris Elliott. It was written by Ramis and Danny Rubin, based on a story by Rubin.
Murray plays Phil Connors, an arrogant Pittsburgh TV weatherman who, during an assignment covering the annual Groundhog Day event in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, finds himself in a time loop, repeating the same day again and again. After indulging in hedonism and committing suicide numerous times, he begins to re-examine his life and priorities.

In 2006, the film was added to the United States National Film Registry as being deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant". A stage musical version of the film is scheduled to premiere in 2016.
WOA’s patrons enjoyed the film and the discussion that followed.
Number of participants – 15 persons.
