Beautiful Friendship, A: A Lent Course Based on Casablanca [9780232531404]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Casablanca is the classic movie and provides a great basis for discussion of themes of sacrifice, repentance, suffering, loss and hope at Lent.

Its wartime setting provides additional poignancy for study at a time of continued armed conflict around the world as well as the centenary remembrance of the first world war. Miranda and Not Going Out writer Paul Kerensa makes an intriguing departure from his comedy writing, preparing this moving book in the style of DLT's classic movie-based Lent Courses. A Beautiful Friendship is written with his wife, Zoe Young.

It is designed to be studied by groups or individuals alongside the DVD of Casablanca, starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. The book includes leaders' notes, timings for film clips, discussion-starters, reflections and prayers.

 

AUTHOR:

Comedian Paul Kerensa is one of the few to appear both at London's Comedy Store and on Radio 2's Pause for Thought. He writes for BBC TV and radio comedy, including the multi-award-winning Miranda and Not Going Out. As a stand-up, he won ITV1's Take The Mike award, and has taken five solo shows to the Edinburgh Festival, including 'Genesis', the basis of the enclosed pages. His first book So a Comedian Walks Into a Church was one of the Independent's top eight comedy books of 2013. He has no bellybutton, so no fluff.
