The FILMS for Waking UP! series returns, with a new time, Friday, Dec. 15, from 4 to 6:30 p.m. at the University of Maine’s Hutchinson Center, 80 Belmont Ave./Route 3.

The film to be screened will be “The Hero” (2017, USA), a poignant look at coming to terms with ourselves and our relationships when the reality of life ending is realized. The movie stars Sam Elliot, Laura Prepon and Krysten Ritter

Series organizers say that films can be a mirror or a window for viewers. After the film, attendees will explore which of these "lenses" have been true for them.

Suggested donation is $10. Those who plan to attend are asked to RSVP at
