The Woods Hole Public Library winter film series is swinging into high gear. Unlike last year, which saw a series only of feature films (many Oscar winners), this year will be a mix of documentaries from POV, the PBS affiliate, and major feature films.
The next in the series will be the new feature film based on the autobiography of Jeanette Walls called “The Glass Castle.” The book was #1 on the New York Times Bestseller list for weeks; the film promises to be a winner too. It traces the tumultuous life of a family through the 1960’s and into the 1970’s, with a brilliant, charismatic, and drunken father, and a mother more dedicated to her art than her family. The children survive through the early nomadic days of life in the Southwest, and struggle as the family falls deeper into poverty, eventually moving back with the father’s poor family in a West Virginia mining town. The movie stars Woody Harrelson, Brie Larson and Naomi Watts.
In response to local patrons’ requests, the Library will be showing this film twice, first in the evening on Monday, December 11 at 7 PM, then later in the week, on Wednesday December 13 at 1 PM in the afternoon. The film will last approximately two hours and, as always, will be free and open to the public. It will be shown in the lower level meeting room, which is easily accessible through the Library’s lower entrance, to the right of the main entrance.
