Sunday Movie Club - The ConversationSunday November 18, 2018
2:00 PM until 5:00 PM
Back for its third season, mark your calendars and join us to view a variety of great movies. On two Sundays in November, December, January and February and March we will be showing a feature length movie at the Library at 2 o’clock. A wonderful opportunity to escape for a couple of hours and share a movie with friends and neighbors. After each movie there will be time to socialize and discuss the film. There is no charge for the event. Feel free to bring your own (non-alcoholic) refreshments. The timely topic of journalism is the theme of our first four movies. We look forward to seeing you at our screenings, as follows:
November 18, THE CONVERSATION , Francis Ford Coppola’s 1974 thriller The Conversation is an alarming look at the foreboding world of electronic surveillance gone bad. Harry Caul (Gene Hackman) is hired by a secret client to record a couple’s conversation in a public park. While revered by his colleagues as being a genius in their field, Harry has kept his professional failings secret by being a lonely and deeply private person. Consumed with guilt for the earlier deaths of innocent people while doing his job, his growing paranoia makes him believe the couple is now in jeopardy after listening to his recordings. Struggling with his own conscience, Harry’s life becomes more unraveled while trying to save them from an unknown threat. Coppola readily admits his screenplay and direction were inspired by Antonioni’s film Blow-Up by exploring a tormented soul trying to separate fact from fiction. Nominated for 3 Oscars (Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Sound) and 4 Golden Globes (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Screenplay), The Conversation stars Gene Hackman, Robert Duvall, Harrison Ford, Allen Garfield, Cindy Williams, John Cazale, Elizabeth MacRae and Terri Garr. 113 minutes.
