Movie Matinee - Priscilla

 

When teenage Priscilla Beaulieu meets Elvis Presley at a party, the man who is already a meteoric rock-and-roll superstar becomes someone entirely unexpected in private moments: a thrilling crush, an ally in loneliness, a vulnerable best friend. Through Priscilla’s eyes, Sofia Coppola tells the unseen side of a great American myth in Elvis and Priscilla's long courtship and turbulent marriage, from a German army base to his dream-world estate at Graceland, in this deeply felt and ravishingly detailed portrait of love, fantasy, and fame. Rated R. 1 hour and 53 minutes.

The Mother's Promise by Sally Hepworth

Sign up at the library and get a copy of the book to borrow.  

Alice and her daughter Zoe have been a family of two all their lives. Zoe has always struggled with crippling social anxiety and her mother has been her constant and fierce protector. With no family to speak of, and the identity of Zoe’s father shrouded in mystery, their team of two works—until it doesn’t. Until Alice gets sick and is given a grim prognosis.

Desperate to find stability for Zoe, Alice reaches out to two women who are practically strangers, but who are her only hope: Kate, her oncology nurse, and Sonja, a social worker. As the four of them come together, a chain of events is set into motion and all four of them must confront their sharpest fears and secrets—secrets about abandonment, abuse, estrangement, and the deepest longing for family. Imbued with heart and humor in even the darkest moments, The Mother’s Promise is an unforgettable novel about the power of love and forgiveness.

Movie Matinee - A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

 

Throughout his life, Fred Rogers (Tom Hanks) made many surprising friendships. One was with a journalist named Tom Junod. For Junod, studying Rogers starts off as a job. But it's not long before he falls under the spell of a man who influenced generations of children. Wearing his heart on his sleeve and unabashedly telling people that they deserve to be loved, Rogers sometimes touches a nerve with the more cynical types, but for Junod, befriending the man ends up becoming a life-altering experience. Rated PG. 1 hour and 47 minutes.
