Friends of The R. H. Johnson Library Presents

September 7, 2017 – “The Elephant Man”

John Hurt stars as John Merrick, the hideously deformed 19th century Londoner known as “The Elephant Man”. Treated as a sideshow freak, Merrick is assumed to be retarded as well as misshapen because of his inability to speak coherently. In fact, he is highly intelligent and sensitive, a fact made public when Dr. Frederick Treves (Anthony Hopkins) rescues Merrick from a carnival and brings him to a hospital for analysis.  (BW) (1980) (2h 4m) (PG)

September 14, 2017 – “Sunset Boulevard”

Gloria Swanson plays Norma Desmond, an aging silent-film queen, and William Holden stars as the struggling young screenwriter who is held in thrall by her madness. In Sunset Boulevard, the two create some of the screen’s most memorable characters. Winner of three Academy Awards, director Billy Wilder’s powerful orchestration of the bizarre tale is a true cinematic classic. From the unforgettable opening sequence — a body found floating in a decayed mansion’s swimming pool — through the inevitable unfolding of tragic destiny, Sunset Boulevard is the definitive statement on the dark and desperate side of Hollywood. (C) (1950) (1h 51m) (NR)

September 21, 2017  – “Little Shop of Horrors”

Frank Oz directs this musical horror comedy starring Rick Moranis and Ellen Greene. Seymour Krelborn (Moranis), a shy young man working for a tyrannical florist, finds a vehicle for private and public success in the form of a man-eating plant from outer space. The carnivorous shrub helps him to become a celebrity, gets rid of his boss, and clears the way for him to woo Audrey (Greene), the girl of his dreams. However, the plant’s cannibalistic eating habits become insatiable and it’s up to Seymour to cut it down to size.   (C) (1986) (1h 34m) (PG-13)

September 28, 2017  –  “Whale Rider”

A small Maori village faces a crisis when the heir to the leadership dies at birth and is survived only by his twin sister, Pai (Keisha Castle-Hughes). Although disregarded by her grandfather and shunned by the people of her village, twelve-year-old Pai remains certain of her calling and trains herself in the ways and customs of her people. With remarkable grace and courage, Pai summons the strength to both challenge and embrace a thousand years of tradition in order to fulfill her destiny. (C) (2003) (1h 41m) (PG-13)
