Fourth Friday Film Series
A new film series presenting just-released movies on our spectacular high definition screen. Remember when going to the movies was an event? We will recreate a bit of that charm with the Fourth Friday Films @ the Library. Refreshments will be served.
The original Disney animated feature was heralded for creating a stronger, more authentic heroine in Belle, now played by Emma Watson. She was a bookish, caring young woman who rejected society’s requirements that she be little more than chattel for whatever boorish oaf was presented to her. 26 years later, the new film adds measurably to her independence, keeping that fierce strength. The Beast, played by Dan Stevens, is not the illiterate crank of the animated version, but a book-lover who shares this trait with Belle. PG 129 min
