The Friends of the Thomaston Public Library’s Friday Night Film Series for July has the theme of Vive La France! The free weekly movie screenings take place Fridays at 7 p.m. in the Thomaston Academy building, 60 Main St./Route 1.

Next up, July 22, is “Triple Agent,” a nonrated film from 2004 that runs 115 minutes. Loosely based on real events and directed by French new wave director Eric Rohmer, this nuanced drama is set in 1930s Paris amid political turmoil on all fronts. When exiled White Russian General Fyodor (Serge Renko) becomes increasingly secretive, his dismayed wife, Arsinoé (Katerina Didaskalu), suspects him of infidelity … but later discovers that her inscrutable spouse is a spy.

This month’s series will conclude July 29 with “My Best Friend” (2006, France). Friday Night Films are open to the public and free of charge, but donations are gratefully accepted; light refreshments will be served. The Thomaston Academy building is handicapped accessible from the rear entrance. For more information, call the library at 354-2453.
