In the award-winning documentary, “In 500 Words or Less,” cameras follow four high school seniors and their families as they spend their final year together navigating the college admission process. The La Cañada Thursday Club will screen this movie at its clubhouse at 4440 Woodleigh Lane at 3 p.m. on Sunday, July 31.
“’In 500 Words or Less’ is an informative and entertaining film which casts light and humor on a stress-filled and important stage of life,” said Thursday Club President Judy Cooper, whose youngest child recently graduated from high school.
“Getting into college today is a family affair as nearly 1.5 million students and their families go through the college admission process each year,” she continued. “While race, geography and socio-economic status affect how the film’s four main characters arrive at their college choices, their emotional stories converge as they all juggle acceptance, rejection, decision-making and letting go. We [at the Thursday Club] hope that our workshop will provide insight and perspective to families embarking on their college admission journeys.”
