Virtual - Friday Night Film Discussion: "Rams" *For Adults
Friday, September 22, 2023
Welcome to our Friday Night Film Discussions! Today, we’ll be discussing the Australian film “Rams" in which two estranged brothers must set aside their differences to save their respective flocks of sheep in Western Australia.
The way it works:
PRIOR to the meeting (whenever works for your schedule), watch "Rams" on Kanopy - one of the library's video streaming service - and then come to the meeting prepared to discuss!
You will need an Ashland library card or a Boston Public Library e-card to use Kanopy. Click here to access Kanopy or for more info on the BPL e-card (see if you are eligible and then register - you can use any of BPL's online resources with this card!).

In remote Western Australia, two estranged brothers, Colin (Sam Neill) and Les (Michael Caton), are at war. Raising separate flocks of sheep descended from their family’s prized bloodline, the two men work side by side yet are worlds apart. When Les’s prize ram is diagnosed with a rare and lethal illness, authorities order a purge of every sheep in the valley. While Colin attempts to stealthily outwit the powers that be, Les opts for angry defiance. But can the warring brothers set aside their differences and have a chance to reunite their family, save their herd, and bring their community back together?
