|Location:||Freedom Public Library|
|Description:||The Winter Film Series consists of six movies shown on Sundays at 4:00 during the months of January, February and March. The movies are free and popcorn is served. Stay afterward if you can for a simple soup and bread supper and a chance to discuss the film. This is also free! We need volunteers to sign up to make soup or bread (also dessert) and we have a signup sheet at the library's front desk if you can help out.
Lady Bird: This coming-of-age story, while addressing every theme of a high school movie, quite successfully avoids most clichés and has been adoringly reviewed by every critic and viewer. The stars are flawless, especially Saoirse Ronan, the young Irish actress whom we saw in “Brooklyn.” Here she portrays the angst-filled teen, Christine, who has adopted “Lady-Bird" as her new name. Christine’s life is just a “disaster”: life in boring old Sacramento, constraints of a Catholic school, not being one of the cool girls or the rich kids, first sex experiments, and above all, endless arguments with mother. Although Christine commits thoughtless and even cruel acts in her path to growing up, we have to forgive her and enjoy the fast-paced and amusing scenes, the memorable characters, and the knowledge and understanding Lady-Bird accumulates as it all works out. [Please note: This film was estimated to be out on DVD in March. If it is not, we will show a different movie. Check library's website for updates.]
