Sunday Movie Club - The Conversation

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.

Reservations are not required.  For any updates, please call the Library 860-434-2272 or consult our website at http://lymepl.org/friends-lyme-library.htm

December 2, ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN, Investigative reporter Bob Woodward is back in the news with his 19th book “Fear,” a tale of Trump. His first book, co-authored in 1974 with fellow Washington Post reporter Carl Bernstein, remains a classic political thriller and journalism textbook. The eponymous film “All The President’s Men” (1976) is even better, winning Oscars for Best Screenplay, Best Sound and Best Art Direction. The action races through the hurdles faced by the two young reporters as they crack the Watergate burglary and bring down President Nixon. The casting is superb with Robert Redford playing Woodward and Dustin Hoffman as Bernstein. Jason Robards wins the best supporting actor Oscar as Ben Bradlee, the courageous and debonair executive editor described by his two ace reporters as looking like an “international jewel thief.” Alan J. Paluka’s direction of the screenplay by William Goldman is riveting and perhaps more important, faithful to the truth. No Fake News here. Just what may be the best movie about journalism ever.  2 hours 18 minutes

Reservations are not required.  For any updates, please call the Library 860-434-2272 or consult our website at http://lymepl.org/friends-lyme-library.htm

December 16, HIS GIRL FRIDAY, Take actors Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell;  add writers Ben Hecht, Charles Lederer and Charles MacArthur, then turn them all over to director Howard Hawks and what you get is a classic--one of the funniest screwball comedies of all time.  Famous for rapid-fire dialogue, this 1940 Columbia Pictures release is an adaptation of Hecht and MacArthur’s prize-winning play, The Front Page.  Even today it remains relevant for its depiction of the deadline-driven, event-consuming world of newspapering.  Grant plays Walter Burns, the hard-boiled editor of The Morning Post. Russell is Hildy Johnson, his star reporter.  And his ex-wife.  She is about to be re-married, this time to a bland insurance man, and settle down as a wife and mother in the hinterlands—an eventuation Grant is determined to sabotage.  The result is a fun-house ride involving attraction, ambition, an innocent man, a bumbling sheriff, a corrupt mayor, a stern prospective mother-in-law and the lure of what may be the biggest scoop of Hildy and Walter’s careers.  1 hour, 32 minutes.

Reservations are not required.  For any updates, please call the Library 860-434-2272 or consult our website at http://lymepl.org/friends-lyme-library.htm
