Feature Film @North Quincy: 20th Century Women
2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

movie stillSet in Santa Barbara, 20th Century Women follows Dorothea Fields (Annette Bening), a determined single mother in her mid-50s who is raising her adolescent son, Jamie (Lucas Jade Zumann) at a moment brimming with cultural change and rebellion. Dorothea enlists the help of two younger women in Jamie’s upbringing — via Abbie (Greta Gerwig), a free-spirited punk artist living as a boarder in the Fields’ home, and Julie (Elle Fanning), a savvy and provocative teenage neighbor. 20th Century Women is a poignant love letter to the people who raise us – and the times that form us – as this makeshift family forges fragile connections that will mystify and inspire them through their lives.

"Despite being set in the late 1970s, 20th Century Women feels like the perfect movie for this moment."--Sara Stewart, New York Post

Directed by Mike Mills. Starring Alison Elliott, Annette Bening, Billy Crudup, Elle Fanning, Greta Gerwig, Lucas Jade Zumann, Thea Gill, and Vitaly Andrew LeBeau. Theatrically released in 2016. 119 Minutes; Rated R for sexual material, language, some nudity and brief drug use.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Thomas Crane Public Library.

Matinee Film: Toni Erdmann
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

movie stillWinfried (Peter Simonischek) doesn’t see much of his working daughter Ines (Sandra Hüller). The suddenly student-less music teacher decides to surprise her with a visit after the death of his old dog. It’s an awkward move because serious career woman Ines is working on an important project as a corporate strategist in Bucharest. The geographical change doesn’t help the two to see more eye to eye. Practical joker Winfried loves to annoy his daughter with corny pranks. What’s worse are his little jabs at her routine lifestyle of long meetings, hotel bars and performance reports. Father and daughter reach an impasse, and Winfried agrees to return home to Germany. Enter flashy Toni Erdmann: Winfried’s smooth-talking alter ego. Disguised in a tacky suit, weird wig and even weirder fake teeth, Toni barges into Ines’ professional life, claiming to be her CEO’s life coach. As Toni, Winfried is bolder and doesn’t hold back, but Ines meets the challenge. The harder they push, the closer they become. In all the madness, Ines begins to understand that her eccentric father might deserve some place in her life after all.

"If you're looking for the best and most beguiling foreign-language film of the year, you'll find it in Maren Ade's Toni Erdmann, a German father-daughter story that will leave you laughing and choking back tears, often simultaneously."--Rolling Stone

Directed by Maren Ade. Starring Peter Simonischek and Sandra Hüller. Theatrically released in 2016. 162 Minutes; Rated R for strong sexual content, graphic nudity, language and brief drug use. In English, German, and Romanian.

Night Owls Book Group for grades 3-4
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
The Night Owls Book Club for children in grades 3 and 4 meets on the 2nd Thursday of each month to discuss a wide range of books.

This month we will be discussing Terrible Two by Mac Barnett.

Miles Murphy is not happy to be moving to Yawnee Valley, a sleepy town that’s famous for one thing and one thing only: cows. In his old school, everyone knew him as the town’s best prankster, but Miles quickly discovers that Yawnee Valley already has a prankster, and a great one. If Miles is going to take the title from this mystery kid, he is going to have to raise his game.

It’s prankster against prankster in an epic war of trickery, until the two finally decide to join forces and pull off the biggest prank ever seen: a prank so huge that it would make the members of the International Order of Disorder proud.

Please stop by the main library children’s room library any time to pick up a copy of the book to read before our meeting. Any questions? Call 617-376-2411 and ask to speak with Ms. Cronin.

Discover Historic New England: Tufts Medical Center
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

book jacketThe story of Tufts Medical Center and the Floating Hospital for Children encompasses the history of medicine in Boston. Founded in 1796, physicians provided free medical care at the Boston Dispensary to the poor through annual subscriptions from wealthy Boston families, including such luminaries as Samuel Adams and Paul Revere. The Floating Hospital for Children started in 1894 as a ship outfitted as a hospital to take the city’s sick children out on Boston Harbor to receive the benefits of fresh ocean air and the attention of a volunteer medical staff. In the 1930s, it merged with the Boston Dispensary and the Pratt Diagnostic Clinic along with Tufts University’s Medical School to form the nucleus of today’s Tufts Medical Center, a national leader in health care, teaching, and research. Learn more about this fascinaiting story from the authors of the recently published book on the subject, Robert Bloomberg and Quincy native Daniel Bird. Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the program.
