Warner; Directed by Gavin O’Connor; Rated R; 128 minutes; 2016

Christian Wolff is a math savant who works as a freelance accountant for some of the world's most dangerous criminal organizations. With the Treasury Department's Crime Enforcement Division starting to close in, he takes on a legitimate client, a robotics company where an accounting clerk has discovered a discrepency involving millions of dollars. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, the body count starts to rise.

Margaret McGowan enjoys writing poetry about the many aspects of her life and interests. She will be reading “The Curse of Oak Island" and “In the Vicinity of the Kuiper Belt.”

Lionsgate; Directed by Mel Gibson; Rated R; 139 minutes; 2016

It's the extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon, as he believed that while the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong. As an army medic, he singlehandedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending to soldiers and was wounded by a grenade and hit by snipers.
