The story of the brilliant concert cellist Jacqueline du Pre, seen from the perspectives of her sister Hilary and brother Piers. While Jackie gains international fame and fortune, she secretly longs for the stable, normal life and family her less famous sister, Hilary has built. Watson and Griffiths deliver impassioned, unforgettable performances as the two gifted sisters who are so close they can literally read each other's minds, and who share everything, even the love of the same man. The movie is an astoundingly rich and subtle exploration of sibling rivalry and the volcanic collisions of love and resentment, competitiveness and mutual dependence that determine their lives.
Discussion to follow movie. Refreshments will be served. Rated R.

It Happened But Nobody Noticed
Friday, September 11th at 7:00 p.m. in the Community Room
Join us for a special screening of the documentary movie, It Happened but Nobody Noticed on Wallingford Public Library’s big screen. The film is by local film-maker Jerry Lombardo and charts the rise and rise of the Connecticut punk, rock and indie music scene. Full of live footage from the heyday punk years of ’78-’88, as well as lots of new interviews with featured musicians and scene-watchers, this movie is a must see event for anyone interested in the CT new wave music scene. Were you there? Did you notice? Perhaps you’ll appear in the crowd footage. Check out that hair!
The film is not rated, but is intended for adults due to theme and language. Refreshments will be served.
The Library offers two sources for downloadable audiobooks.
