Reel Conversations: Days of Heaven

Days of Heaven

Saturday October 26th, 2:00 p.m. in the Community Room

Our fall film series “Unlikely Partners” continues this month with Terrence Malick’s Days of Heaven, a story of love and murder told through the jaded voice of a child and the expressive images of nature.

In 1916, Chicago steelworker Bill (Richard Gere), his little sister Linda (Linda Manz) and girlfriend Abby (Brooke Adams), flee to Texas, where they work the harvest at a wealthy, ailing farmer’s ranch. The farmer (playwright Sam Shepard) falls in love with Abby. Seeing it as his one real chance to escape perpetual poverty, Bill urges Abby to marry the sick man. Marriage, however, has more restorative powers, and the farmer has more magnetism, than Bill had planned.

Calling all WPL Association members and Downton Abbey Fans!

Monday October 28th, 7:00 p.m. in the Community Room

From the Gilded Age until 1914, more than 100 American heiresses invaded Britannia and swapped dollars for titles--just like Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham, the first of the Downton Abbey characters Julian Fellowes was inspired to create after reading To Marry an English Lord.

Please join us for an informative and entertaining evening when we conduct our 133rd annual meeting with special guest Carol Wallace, author of To Marry an English Lord. Ms. Wallace will share some of the fascinating stories and anecdotes from her book and at the conclusion of her presentation, books will be available for purchase and signing. (Great Christmas gifts for those Downton Abbey fans in your life!)

Friday Night Flicks Presents: The Heat

The Heat

Friday October 18th, 6:00 p.m. in the Community Room

Uptight and straight-laced, FBI Special Agent Sarah Ashburn is a methodical investigator with a reputation for excellence - and hyper-arrogance. Shannon Mullins, one of Boston P.D.'s "finest," is foul-mouthed and has a very short fuse, and uses her gut instinct and street smarts to catch the most elusive criminals. Neither has ever had a partner, or a friend for that matter. When these two wildly incompatible law officers join forces to bring down a ruthless drug lord, they become the last thing anyone expected: buddies.
