Monsieur Lazhar, and it was excellent. Really excellent.
At the restaurant before the movie, I suddenly heard JJ (our peerless organizer) say over the chatter and clatter of the busy establishment, "Let me ask you all one question: Are you grateful?"
"Yes!" we answered.
There was laughter from the group, and I realized someone must have asked JJ about saying grace before our meal. Good solution for a noisy environment.
