Swarthmore Public Library Film Discussion Group Presents

Far From the Madding Crowd

Tuesday, September 8th at 2pm

Swarthmore Public Library

Based on the literary classic by Thomas Hardy, Far From the Madding Crowd is the story of independent, beautiful and headstrong Bathsheba Everdene (Carey Mulligan), who attracts three very different suitors: Gabriel Oak (Matthias Schoenaerts), a sheep farmer, captivated by her fetching willfulness; Frank Troy (Tom Sturridge), a handsome and reckless Sergeant; and William Boldwood (Michael Sheen), a prosperous and mature bachelor. This timeless story of Bathsheba's choices and passions explores the nature of relationships and love - as well as the human ability to overcome hardships through resilience and perseverance.

 

A thoroughly modern film anyone can relate to - it's like a "what a woman wants" discussion set in Victorian times. It's also an instant classic. ~Graham Fuller, New York Daily News

 

You can smell the faintly salty air, hear the sheep's insistent bleating, sense the coolness of a spring dew, feel the sharpness of the wind as the seasons change. ~Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times

 

Rated PG13                                                                                           119 Minutes

All Programs are free and open to the public.  To register, please call

610-543-0436 or email swarthmore@delcolibraries.org

Each 2nd Tuesday of the month we get together to watch a film, and discuss it!  

All programs are free and open to the public.  To register, please call 610-543-0436 or email swarthmore@delcolibraries.org.

Dance Me a Story

Friday, September 11th @ 10:30am

Taught by Lisa Oster, a dance teacher from Darlington Arts Center.

"Each class starts in a circle with a warm-up and gross-motor skills around the room. I use dance terms throughout the class (plié, releve, passé, chasse). I also incorporate a bit of yoga in the warm up. Then each class features a story with movement and accompanying music. Class ends with Freeze dance into a cool down."

Parents stay in the room, but must keep conversations to minimum. Parents may join in if it helps their child but in general the kids participate on their own. --Follow Ms Lisa & "Dance Me a Story"
