NEW (In-Person) - Friday Night Film Viewing: "Two of Us" *For Adults
Friday, February 2, 2024
Back by popular demand, Carolyn Bell brings IN PERSON film viewing to the Ashland Library (this in addition to her regularly scheduled virtual film discussions)! Join Carolyn in watching "Two of Us" in which pensioners Nina and Madeleine, who have hidden their deep and passionate love for many decades, have their bond put to the test when they are suddenly unable to move freely between each other's apartments. We will be viewing the film and, if time allows, having a short discussion of it afterwards.
Please Register for this program so that Carolyn knows how many people to expect!
Carolyn Bell is a longtime Ashland Library Trustee and a true film enthusiast! She has been leading film discussions at the library for many years and is thrilled to be able to offer both in person and virtual events - access for all!
Pensioners Nina and Madeleine have hidden their deep and passionate love for many decades. From the point of view of those surrounding them, including Madeleine's meddling daughter, they are simply two neighbors sharing a hallway during their sunset years. In reality, this landing is a bridge between two worlds: one belonging to a widowed, doting grandmother, the other to a free-spirited woman who longs to spend her life with the person she loves. Clandestinely, Nina and Madeleine share a tender life, moving freely between their apartments until an unexpected event closes the portal. But their secret cannot remain hidden if they are to stay together - and their unconditional love is put to the test.
