3. What Clint Eastwood-directed movie was set either fully or partially in South Africa?

A: “Invictus”

4. What nonfictional writer did Heath Ledger play in a movie?

5. What is the common bond of the first four questions in this week’s trivia contest?

A: The movies included in the questions and/or the answers all starred Matt Damon.

5. What is the common thread connecting the first four questions and/or correct answers in this week’s trivia contest?
