July Films at Southbury Public Library
A romantic comedy inspired by true events is the first of this month’s Wednesday afternoon free films at the Southbury Public Library, showing on July 13. The setting is London, the time, V.E. day, marking the end of World War II in Europe, and in the evening Princess Elizabeth and Princess Margaret leave the confines of Buckingham Palace to join the glorious celebration. Sarah Gadon and Bel Powley play the princesses; Rupert Everett plays their father, King George VI; and Emily Watson, their mother, Elizabeth.
Judi Dench and Maggie Smith star in the July 20th film, as two aging sisters living in a quiet coastal village in Cornwall. Their peaceful lives, as well as the whole community, are disrupted when they take in a young Polish violinist they find washed ashore, injured after having been swept overboard from an America-bound ship during a storm.
On July 27th it’s a goosebumpy thriller from 1964, with Bette Davis playing a dual role as twin sisters, long estranged and leading very different lives. One is jealous enough of the other to commit murder. Karl Malden and Peter Lawford play the sisters’ love interests; Paul Henried directed.
The films are sponsored by Friends of the Southbury Public Library, with the videos provided by Connecticut Libraries. They begin at 1:00 PM in the Kingsley Meeting room surround sound theater, with infrared listening system available. Because of licensing and copyright agreements, the Library cannot list the titles of the films. For further information, call the Library at 203-262-0626.
