'Famille' flick on library screen

Nov 19, 2012
A lot can happen during a birthday dinner, as the French comedy "Un air de famille (Family Resemblance)" proves.

Thomaston — Friends of the Thomaston Public Library presents its Friday Night Film Series with screenings Fridays at 6:30 p.m. in the community room of Thomaston Public Library in the Thomaston Academy Building, 60 Main St./Route 1. The theme for November’s movies is French and Italian Comedy.

The Nov. 23 film is "Un Air de Famille," a 105-minute film from 1996. A middle-class French clan celebrates a birthday with a meal at a favorite bistro where family history, discord, collective and individual animosity and memories collide in a mix of colorful characters, raw emotion, humor and sharp dialogue. The tour-de-force of verbal jousting is based on a play written by co-stars Agnès Jaoui and Jean-Pierre Bacri and directed by Cédric Klapisch, who also is in the film .

Friday Night Films are open to the public and free of charge, but donations are gratefully accepted. The Thomaston Academy Building is handicapped accessible from the rear entrance and light refreshments will be served. For more information, call the library at 354-2453.
