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.
