Wednesday afternoon movies at Southbury Public Library begin this month on October 11th with a true story starring Oprah Winfrey as the daughter of a woman who became an unwitting pioneer in medical research when cells from her cancer were used to create the first immortal human cell line. The film focuses on how this affected her family, who only found out years later.
On October 18th it’s a story about a single man raising his young niece who is found to have remarkable mathematics abilities as she starts first grade. When this comes to the attention of her grandmother, his plans for the child to have a normal school life are foiled, leading to a custody battle.
October 25th brings one of the year’s blockbusters. Hearing of conflict in the outside world, she leaves home to fight a war and discovers her full powers and true destiny.
