Coming Attractions: March 2024

coming attractions

This month, the library will be hosting three movie screenings in our Program Room. On Tuesday, March 19th at 6:30 PM and Thursday, March 21st at 2 PM, we’ll be showing Poor Things, directed by Yorgos Lanthimos (The Favourite, The Killing of a Sacred Deer). Based on Alasdair Gray’s 1992 novel of the same name, the story follows the resurrection of Bella (Emma Stone). Through unorthodox experimentations with human life and death, scientist Dr. Godwin Baxter (Willem Dafoe) raises the young woman back to life. However, her newer version finds her relearning about the world and its ways. At the same time, she discovers inequalities that restrict women in a conservative society. What follows is her newfound quest to pursue liberation and equality.

The film won four awards at this year’s Oscars, including Best Actress for Emma Stone. It was also nominated for seven other awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Supporting Actor (Mark Ruffalo), and Best Adapted Screenplay. It is rated R, and runs 2 hours & 20 minutes.

Then on Saturday, March 23rd at 1:30 PM, we’ll be showing Blitz Bazawule’s The Color Purple. In this musical adaptation of Alice Walker’s novel, a woman (Fantasia Barrino) faces many hardships in her life, but ultimately finds extraordinary strength and hope in the unbreakable bonds of sisterhood. The film was nominated for Best Supporting Actress (Danielle Brooks) at this year’s Academy Awards.

The Color Purple is rated PG-13, and runs 2 hours & 20 minutes. All of these screenings are free and open to the public, with no registration required. The films will be played with English subtitles for the hard of hearing. Free popcorn will be served (while supplies last). Doors open 30 minutes before showtime.
