Marsha On the Move: August 2020

Promotional still from "A Place to Call Home"

A Place to Call Home (Available for purchase through Acorn TV, YouTube, iTunes and more.)

This show is six seasons of pure delight. It’s about family dynamics – sometimes dysfunctional, often painful, and ultimately loving. It is also about history – post war, with people scarred by the aftermath of that period, and coming to terms with the realities of their lives… and about societal change – intermarriage, gay love and single mothers. It is about community – with its gossip, secret trysts and murders, but also care. A Place to Call Home shows compassion about healthcare. It shows the struggle to understand and accept those with different backgrounds. Yes, this show includes a little bit of everything. Don’t worry. It’s not all sugar-sweet. There is pain, violence, manipulation, deception and people you grow to hate (I mean really despise). This became my home for many months and I loved every minute, especially after learning that this show is based on a true story.

Dr. Marsha Gordon is President/CEO of The Business Council of Westchester. When she is not advocating for business, building the economy or creating job opportunities, you can find her at the movie theatre enjoying many different film genres.  Most of the time, her husband Eli is with her… except if it is football season or if it is a very slow, sappy movie.
