The Friday Films
movie series theme for March and April will be “And the Oscar Nominees Are…”
The series begins on Friday, March 7th at 2:00 PM with a movie based on the true story of Captain Richard Phillips (played by Tom Hanks) and the 2009 hijacking by Somali pirates of the US-flagged MV Maersk Alabama, which was the first American cargo ship to be hijacked in two hundred years.
On Friday, March 21st at 2:00 PM, stop by and watch Woody Allen’s 46th directorial effort. After everything in her life falls to pieces, including her marriage to wealthy businessman Hal, elegant New York socialite Jasmine (Cate Blanchett) moves into her sister Ginger's humble apartment in San Francisco to try to pull herself back together again.
Join us on Friday, April 4th at 2:00 PM to watch Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock), a brilliant medical engineer, on her first shuttle mission with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney). On a seemingly routine spacewalk, the shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky spiraling out into the blackness. The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left, and the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.
The series will conclude on Friday, April 11th at 2:00 PM, with a film that shares the harrowing account of Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), born free in New York State, who was drugged, kidnapped, and sold into slavery in 1841. After twelve years, he meets Samuel Bass (Brad Pitt), a Canadian who helps start the process to regain Solomon’s freedom.
Films are free and everyone is welcome. No need to register. Just come and enjoy the movie on the big screen! For more information, please call the Library at (860) 763-7512, or visit our website: www.enfieldpubliclibrary.org.
