Movie Discussion Group verdict – SALUTE (Dendy): ****

Movie_Group 28 July 2008 3

SALUTE is the documentary about Peter Norman, the Australian Olympian who, through indirect participation of a political stance on the podium, was ostracised from Australian selection in future games. We all pretty much agreed on this one – a fascinating story revolving around a great character. Everyone wanted to find out even more than what was given to us in the film, particularly around the period when he was not invited to participate in the Sydney Olympics celebrations.

Group rating: four stars (out of five)

I wonder, do you screen your prospective members for suitability? You wouldn’t want anyone that has lost the plot.

Nope, that’s fine. You’re now on the email list. You’ll be receiving a meeting notification in the next couple of days. Welcome to the group!

I emailed, no response.

Did I have to say something specific?
