Firstly, thank you Elvis fans for making this afternoon's 2nd annual birthday matinee a success! It was great to see the lasting impact he's had on the lives of so many.
Secondly, film lovers take note: our Independent Film Night continues this Thursday, January 12th @ 6:30pm with an audacious new Colombian film titled Karen Cries on the Bus.
We know, the title does not evoke the most cheerful connotations and you might be hesitant to subject yourself to this film especially during the dreary days of January, but trust us when we tell you that this movie is uplifting. It's about a woman rediscovering what's important in life after coming to a crossroads in her unfulfilling marriage. It is, in many ways, the perfect movie for January, which is after all, named for Janus the Roman god of beginnings and transitions.
The film is in Spanish English Subtitles. Run time 98 minutes. Please note: These Independent films are not rated by the MPAA and should be considered for mature audiences. The Pollard Library Independent Film night occurs on the 2nd Thursday of every month. The events are free and open to the public. Made possible by the Friends of the Library.
