Our “Pride Month Film Series” is back!
The Library has been celebrating LGBTQ+ diversity and lives through our annual “Pride Month Film Series,” now in its fifth year. Since we can’t come together to watch these films in person, we’ve taken the series online. All the films are available to watch prior to our meetings to Morristown & Morris Township cardholders through the Library’s subscription to Kanopy, a movie streaming platform (https://mmt.kanopy.com/). We’ll then come together and talk about what we liked – or didn’t like – about the films. First up at 7pm on Tuesday, June 8 at 7pm: “Cloudburst,” a 2002 “Thelma and Louise”-style road movie co-starring Academy Award-winning actresses Olympia Dukakis and Brenda Fricker playing Stella and Dot, a couple of 31 years who escape to Canada when Dot is forced into a nursing home by her granddaughter.
