4:00 PM - 7:00 PMWinter Film Series: Blackkklansman



Location:  Freedom Public Library
Contact:  Elizabeth Rhymer
Description:  The Winter Film Series consists of six films shown in January, February and March on Sunday afternoons at 4:00. Following each movie, we offer a simple soup and bread supper, also free, for anyone who would like to stay for a meal and a chance to talk about the film. The library has a signup sheet for volunteers to bring soup, bread and dessert.

Blackkklansman: The latest offering of the brilliant Spike Lee is a look at tribes:  white supremacists, Black activists, and the police, served up as a serious political drama played for laughs. Set in the ‘70s, the film, based on real events, stars John David Washington (yes, Denzel’s son), as Ron Stallworth, the first black cop to join the Colorado Springs Police Department. Originally assigned to investigate the militancy of the local black population by attending an appearance by activist Stokely Carmichael, Stallworth later convinces his bosses to allow him to infiltrate the local KKK. “Whitening” his voice, Stallworth makes phone contact using the usual racist rants, and is asked by the delighted Klansmen to appear in person at their meeting. To solve the obvious problem, white Ron is impersonated by fellow cop, Flip (Adam Driver), but black Ron is at the controls. Hilarious, foul-mouthed, confusing, and disturbing, Lee makes his points powerfully about our entrenched racism past and present.

Three Identical Strangers: A 19-year-old Westchester County Community College student in 1980 is mistaken for another student and the resemblance is so uncanny that it leads to the astonishing discovery of a twin, his doppelganger. Publicity about the event leads to a third startling discovery: There are three - triplets so identical that they walk, talk, sound alike and even have the same tastes and smoking habits. Separated at birth, they have been raised in different New York families.  This documentary records their amazement and delight in this reunion which leads to fame and spectacle and tabloid fever. However, as the story continues, it becomes darker and stranger, with twists and turns, and explorations of identity that …..well, you must see it for yourself to find out what comes next.

4:00 PM - 7:00 PMWinter Film Series: The Wife

Description:  The Winter Film Series consists of six films shown in January, February and March on Sunday afternoons at 4:00.

The library has a signup sheet for volunteers to bring soup, bread and dessert.

The Wife: Glenn Close is outstanding as the supportive wife of an acclaimed writer who has just won the Nobel Prize. In this movie based on a novel by Meg Wolitzer, Close’s character, Joan Castleman, plays the traditional wife who kept the house, paid the bills, and ran the show as her slightly absent-minded husband, Joe (Jonathan Pryce), gathered accolades in his career as an esteemed man-of-letters. Celebrations galore now applaud the honoree at home and in Stockholm as the awards ceremony approaches, and a would-be biographer (Christian Slater) pursues the Castlemans, hoping to gather material. Flashbacks flesh out the story of the couple in the ‘60s--the struggling professor and the adoring student--but in Joan’s conversation with the biographer, she shows her accumulated frustration, rage, and resentment in a showcase scene as the film reveals its final secret.

Shoplifters: Hirokazu Kore-eda is one of Japan’s best film writers and directors. His latest , Shoplifters, explores the idea of “family,” in this case a group of people who steal for a living--food, toiletries, whatever--but whose thievery is also a way of life. Chaotic, cramped, and cluttered quarters house the family of father, mother, 10-year-old boy wise beyond his years, adult daughter working in a sex club, and grandma. When the family returns home from a day at “work” they come across a shivering girl by herself outside her home. Before long the child, Juri, is part of the family learning the trade. As months pass, Juri’s disappearance hits the news, but by this time it’s too late to return her and life goes on, with little concern that she was, in fact, kidnapped. Pay close attention as the movie unfolds to reveal more about these people.  There are some surprises in store in this beautifully constructed drama.

The library has a signup sheet for volunteers to bring soup, bread and dessert.

The Guilty: Asger Holm, a Danish policeman, demoted to work in a 911 Call Center, reveals through bits of conversation that he’s embroiled in a controversy in his job and also has an unhappy personal situation. He is an unlikeable sort, abrasive and judgmental to his troubled callers. Soon there comes a serious call that he decides not to refer to another department, but to take charge of himself. Iben has been abducted by her husband and is calling from a car speeding north on the highway. Asger helps the terrified victim hold things together and we learn the horrifying details of Iben’s predicament, and also about the incident that has caused Asger’s troubles. Through clever dialogue and sound effects this aural nail biter will keep your heart pounding as you imagine what is happening outside the confines of the Call Center. The star, Jakob Cedergren, carries it all in taut close-ups as the tension builds.

Following each movie, we offer a simple soup and bread supper, also free, for anyone who would like to stay for a meal and a chance to talk about the film. The library has a signup sheet for volunteers to bring soup, bread and dessert.

Green Book: Green Book, based on a true story, is a road movie set in 1962 about a black pianist, Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali) and his white driver, Tony Villelonga (Viggo Mortenson), making their way from New York to Alabama. The Green Book was a manual for black people traveling in the country at that time, but especially in the Jim Crow South, which helped them find welcoming accommodations for the night. Shirley’s record company, having booked him on a southern tour, hired Tony as his driver and bodyguard. The story of interracial male friendship has been told before, but there is controversy about how the film handles racial conflict and critics have objected to the portrayal of Tony as a “white savior.” However, viewers and critics have been won over by the wonderful performances of the actors. Mortenson is funny and crude as the tough guy and Ali is refined and witty as the brilliant pianist; each man has a beneficial effect on the other and they are a joy to watch together.

Winter Film Series: Blackkklansman
The Winter Film Series consists of six films shown in January, February and March on Sunday afternoons at 4:00. Following each movie, we offer a simple soup and bread supper, also free, for anyone who would like to stay for a meal and a chance to talk about the film. The library has a signup sheet for volunteers to bring soup, bread and dessert.

Blackkklansman: The latest offering of the brilliant Spike Lee is a look at tribes:  white supremacists, Black activists, and the police, served up as a serious political drama played for laughs. Set in the ‘70s, the film, based on real events, stars John David Washington (yes, Denzel’s son), as Ron Stallworth, the first black cop to join the Colorado Springs Police Department. Originally assigned to investigate the militancy of the local black population by attending an appearance by activist Stokely Carmichael, Stallworth later convinces his bosses to allow him to infiltrate the local KKK. “Whitening” his voice, Stallworth makes phone contact using the usual racist rants, and is asked by the delighted Klansmen to appear in person at their meeting. To solve the obvious problem, white Ron is impersonated by fellow cop, Flip (Adam Driver), but black Ron is at the controls. Hilarious, foul-mouthed, confusing, and disturbing, Lee makes his points powerfully about our entrenched racism past and present.

Three Identical Strangers: A 19-year-old Westchester County Community College student in 1980 is mistaken for another student and the resemblance is so uncanny that it leads to the astonishing discovery of a twin, his doppelganger. Publicity about the event leads to a third startling discovery: There are three - triplets so identical that they walk, talk, sound alike and even have the same tastes and smoking habits. Separated at birth, they have been raised in different New York families.  This documentary records their amazement and delight in this reunion which leads to fame and spectacle and tabloid fever. However, as the story continues, it becomes darker and stranger, with twists and turns, and explorations of identity that …..well, you must see it for yourself to find out what comes next.

The library has a signup sheet for volunteers to bring soup, bread and dessert.

The Wife: Glenn Close is outstanding as the supportive wife of an acclaimed writer who has just won the Nobel Prize. In this movie based on a novel by Meg Wolitzer, Close’s character, Joan Castleman, plays the traditional wife who kept the house, paid the bills, and ran the show as her slightly absent-minded husband, Joe (Jonathan Pryce), gathered accolades in his career as an esteemed man-of-letters. Celebrations galore now applaud the honoree at home and in Stockholm as the awards ceremony approaches, and a would-be biographer (Christian Slater) pursues the Castlemans, hoping to gather material. Flashbacks flesh out the story of the couple in the ‘60s--the struggling professor and the adoring student--but in Joan’s conversation with the biographer, she shows her accumulated frustration, rage, and resentment in a showcase scene as the film reveals its final secret.

The library has a signup sheet for volunteers to bring soup, bread and dessert.

Shoplifters: Hirokazu Kore-eda is one of Japan’s best film writers and directors. His latest , Shoplifters, explores the idea of “family,” in this case a group of people who steal for a living--food, toiletries, whatever--but whose thievery is also a way of life. Chaotic, cramped, and cluttered quarters house the family of father, mother, 10-year-old boy wise beyond his years, adult daughter working in a sex club, and grandma. When the family returns home from a day at “work” they come across a shivering girl by herself outside her home. Before long the child, Juri, is part of the family learning the trade. As months pass, Juri’s disappearance hits the news, but by this time it’s too late to return her and life goes on, with little concern that she was, in fact, kidnapped. Pay close attention as the movie unfolds to reveal more about these people.  There are some surprises in store in this beautifully constructed drama.

Following each movie, we offer a simple soup and bread supper, also free, for anyone who would like to stay for a meal and a chance to talk about the film. The library has a signup sheet for volunteers to bring soup, bread and dessert.

The Guilty: Asger Holm, a Danish policeman, demoted to work in a 911 Call Center, reveals through bits of conversation that he’s embroiled in a controversy in his job and also has an unhappy personal situation. He is an unlikeable sort, abrasive and judgmental to his troubled callers. Soon there comes a serious call that he decides not to refer to another department, but to take charge of himself. Iben has been abducted by her husband and is calling from a car speeding north on the highway. Asger helps the terrified victim hold things together and we learn the horrifying details of Iben’s predicament, and also about the incident that has caused Asger’s troubles. Through clever dialogue and sound effects this aural nail biter will keep your heart pounding as you imagine what is happening outside the confines of the Call Center. The star, Jakob Cedergren, carries it all in taut close-ups as the tension builds.

The library has a signup sheet for volunteers to bring soup, bread and dessert.

Green Book: Green Book, based on a true story, is a road movie set in 1962 about a black pianist, Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali) and his white driver, Tony Villelonga (Viggo Mortenson), making their way from New York to Alabama. The Green Book was a manual for black people traveling in the country at that time, but especially in the Jim Crow South, which helped them find welcoming accommodations for the night. Shirley’s record company, having booked him on a southern tour, hired Tony as his driver and bodyguard. The story of interracial male friendship has been told before, but there is controversy about how the film handles racial conflict and critics have objected to the portrayal of Tony as a “white savior.” However, viewers and critics have been won over by the wonderful performances of the actors. Mortenson is funny and crude as the tough guy and Ali is refined and witty as the brilliant pianist; each man has a beneficial effect on the other and they are a joy to watch together.
