Sunday Movie Club

Back for its second season, mark your calendars to travel with us--through the magic of movies--to Europe, Australia, China, Mexico, India....  All without leaving town.  On two Sundays in November, December, January and February 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 films are scheduled as follows:

November 5,  SILK STOCKINGS, from 1957, is an MGM film adaptation of the 1955 musical of the same name, which in itself was a remake of  NINOTCHKA, the successful Billy Wilder movie (1939) with Greta Garbo. The film stars Fred Astaire and Cyd Charisse and was directed by Rouben Mamoulian. It was nominated for two Oscars, for Best Film (The Bridge on the River Kwai won) and Best Actress (Kay Kendall for Les Girls). It would be Astaire's last musical comedy, almost reason in itself to come and see it (again).1 hr., 57 min.

The films are scheduled as follows:

November 19, ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT, from 1930. Based on possibly the most famous book about the First World War, which ended on November 11, 1918. The film rights were bought by Universal Studios and the director, Lewis Milestone used thousands of German army veterans as extras to make the film as realistic as possible. It was considered a truthful account of the war by most critics. Nominated for four Oscars, it won for Best Movie and Best Director.  A true classic.

The films are scheduled as follows:

December 3, KING OF MASKS, KING OF MASKS:  Director:  Wu Tianming   Writer:  Wei Minglung, 101 minutes - Sichuan, China.  1930.  An old curmudgeon in search of an heir; a young child in search of a father.  The compelling simplicity and beauty of this film packs surprising emotional power.  Wang, the old man, is a performer who plies his craft from village to village along a river.  Although his act—the rapid changing of silk masks—is as humble as he, Wang has earned a certain fame and the respect of far more powerful artists.  But he has no son to carry on the tradition.  Enter the child, whom he buys at a black market and begins to train—only to discover that she is a girl, and thus not eligible to inherit.  This poignant story digs deeply into the nature of hope, poverty, loneliness and art—and is sure to take hold of your heart.

Sunday Movie Club

Back for its second season, mark your calendars to travel with us--through the magic of movies--to Europe, Australia, China, Mexico, India....  All without leaving town.  On two Sundays in November, December, January and February 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 films are scheduled as follows:

December 17, WATER, Writer and Director:  Deepa Mehta   115 minutes

India.  1938.  An 8 year-old, sold as a child-bride by her impoverished parents, is suddenly widowed.  The Hindu practice of suttee—wherein a widow hurls herself onto the funeral pyre of her late husband—has been outlawed.  Chuyia, the young girl, is consigned to an ashram, where widows who aren’t married off to their brothers-in-law, live out their lives in a kind of suspended animation.  Deepa Mehta’s exquisite film “Water” follows the girl as she makes a life for herself in the ashram and finds her way to liberation from its confines.  It also explores the traditions of an Indian society on the brink of independence.  Released in 2005, this lyrical movie was nominated for an Oscar as Best Foreign Film.
