Tuesday Night at the Movies: The Zookeeper's Wife
Tuesday April 17, 2018
6:30 PM until 8:30 PM
Tonight we are showing the powerful film - set in 1939 Poland - which is called "The Zookeeper's Wife." It tells the true story of Antonia Zabinski (played by Jessica Chastain) who successfully runs the Warsaw Zoo, with her husband, to raise their family in an idyllic existence in 1939 Poland. Their world is overturned however, when the country is invaded by the Nazis and they are forced to report to the Reich's newly appointed zoologist (Daniel Bruhl). To fight back on their own terms, the Zabinskis risk everything by covertly working with the Resistance and using the zoo's hidden tunnels and cages to save families from Nazi brutality. This is rated PG-13 for "thematic elements, disturbing images, violence, brief sexuality, nudity and smoking." It is not suitable for young children. The running time is 2 hrs, 6 min. If you have not seen this movie, it it not to be missed! Please join us. This program is kindly sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.
