As a complement to the Third Thursday Book Club's November 17 discussion of Kazuo Ishiguro's novel Remains of the Day, the library shows a matinee of the movie with the same name. Staring Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson, this film is directed by James Ivory. It was nominated for 41 awards including 8 Academy Awards -- Best Picture, Best Actor in a leading role, and Best Actress in a leading role. The story is about a butler who sacrificed body and soul to service in the years leading up to World War II, then realizes too late how misguided his loyalty was to his lordly employer.
Movie attendees are welcome to bring a lunch or snack and beverage.
