Brian Finneganabout this book: Loosing your job may feel like a terrible ending, but for the group of mismatched colleagues at the heart of The Forced Redundancy Film Club, it's the beginning of something none of them would have ever expected.
On the day that high-flying career girl, Katherine Casey is one of 180 people fired at Qwertec Solutions, she ends up in a bar with three colleagues she normally wouldn't be seen dead with. And after a few too many drinks, she agrees to be part of a film club with them, where they'll watch classic movies in each other's houses every month.
There's devil-may-care film buff, Martin, who has had feelings for Katherine since the day she started at the job; harried mother of three, Lisa, who's fantasy of being a stay at home mom is going to be sorely tested; cheating boyfriend Jamie, who has fallen into a dangerous relationship with an Iranian bunny boiler; and office oddball, Alice, on the hunt for her birth mother with the detective help of her eighty year-old next door neighbour.
Over the course of a year and ten of the best-loved movies of all time - from 'Casablanca' to 'The Wizard of Oz', 'Thelma & Louise' to 'It's a Wonderful Life', this unlikely group of friends learn about more about life, love and the true meaning of happiness than they would ever have imagined when they first lost their jobs. And they find that sometimes the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true.
