‘Three Days’ with the CIA

Jul 14, 2018
They don’t exactly meet cute, but Faye Dunaway and Robert Redford eventually bond in “Three Days of the Condor.”

Thomaston — The Friends of the Thomaston Public Library’s weekly Friday Night Film Series stars Robert Redford in July. Screenings are at 7 p.m. in the Thomaston Academy building, 60 Main St./Route 1. Admission is free; parking and handicap access are in the rear of the building.

Up next, on July 20, is “Three Days of the Condor” (1975, USA). On a seemingly ordinary day, Joe Turner (Redford), a quiet undercover agent code-named Condor, returns from lunch to his workplace and finds that all of his coworkers have been murdered. Horrified, he flees the scene and tries to tell his supervisors about the tragedy; unfortunately, he soon learns that CIA higher-ups were involved in the murders. With no one to trust and frantic for answers, Turner abducts a photographer (Faye Dunaway) and eventually he talks her into helping him. They discover there are some secrets people will kill to keep.

The R-rated film runs 117 minutes. This month’s series will conclude July 27 with “Sneakers” (1992, USA).
