Our movie for the month of January is Growing Up Smith.  (It is available through the Library, Hoopla, or your own personal streaming memberships.)

This is the story of an Indian family that moves to America in 1979 with the hope of living the American Dream. Their 10-year-old son, Smith, has his own idea of what the American Dream is and this propels him and his family further away from their traditional ideals than ever before.

After viewing the movie, we would love to hear from you. Questions and information pertaining to the movie will be posted every Tuesday of the month. Please respond to these Tuesday Tidbits under the comments section.

Your first Tuesday Tidbits is:

Did you learn anything from this movie? If you did, what was it? How many stars would you give the movie Growing Up Smith?

  1. As a Baby Boomer, I really connected with this movie. I believe it deserves 5 stars. So many funny references to days gone by. Really enjoyed Smith’s adaptation of John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever. Reminded me of the struggles so many newcomers to America had to face in an effort to be accepted.


  2. I didn’t think that I would like this movie but I really enjoyed it. There was a lot of humor and one-liners throughout the movie. The nostalgia of the era was really well-played. I would give this a full 5 stars and recommend it to others. This is a good start to ‘movie chat’.


  3. I would give this delightful film 5 stars, I did learn than that it is not a good idea to wear a Halloween costume of the Hindu goddess, Ganesha in a non Hindu neighborhood. This film is a glimpse of americana in a setting of yesteryear where one can find wonderful neighbors and friendships.


  4. The music in this film brought back many memories from my own childhood. While it is not a new learning, I was reminded of the value of having a best friend.
