Friday Film Club: Wakefield
October 20, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Our Friday Film Club in October explores: When is a house a home?
In Robin Swicord’s adaptation of E.L. Doctorow’s short story, successful suburbanite commuter Howard Wakefield (Bryan Cranston) takes a perverse detour from family life: He vanishes without a trace. Hidden in the attic of his carriage house garage, surviving by scavenging at night, Howard secretly observes the lives of his wife (Jennifer Garner) and children and neighbors. WAKEFIELD becomes a fraught meditation on marriage and identity, as Howard slowly realizes that he has not in fact left his family, he has left himself.
Fall Films in October start at 1:00 PM in the library’s upstairs theater for adults 18 & up. Hot Tea, Pastries & Popcorn served and discussion after all movies.
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.
