Friday Film Club: The Big Short
October 6, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Our Friday Film Club in October explores: When is a house a home?
We start house hunting on October 6th with The Big Short, where bigger is not always better and more often leaves many with less…much less money that is. If you’re lucky enough to own a vacation home, there might be reason to worry in Buster’s Mal Heart on October 13th. Then there are those that love their house so much, they just can’t leave, as in Wakefield on October 20th, and A Ghost Story on October 27th.
The Big Short: In 2008, Wall Street guru Michael Burry realizes that a number of subprime home loans are in danger of defaulting. Burry bets against the housing market by throwing more than $1 billion of his investors’ money into credit default swaps. His actions attract the attention of banker Jared Vennett (Ryan Gosling), hedge-fund specialist Mark Baum (Steve Carell) and other greedy opportunists. Together, these men make a fortune by taking full advantage of the impending economic collapse in America.
Fall Films in October start at 1:00 PM in the library’s upstairs theater and is for adults 18 & up. Hot Tea, Pastries & Popcorn served and discussion after all movies.
