Virtual - Friday Night Film Discussion: "Storm Boy" *For Adults

Friday, January 28, 2022

Welcome to our Friday Night Film Discussions! Today, we’ll be discussing “Storm Boy” which is based on the beloved book, STORM BOY by Colin Thiele, and is a timeless story of an unusual and unconditional friendship.

The way it works:

PRIOR to the meeting (whenever works for your schedule), watch "Storm Boy" 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!).

Please register to receive the program link - which will be in your confirmation and reminder emails (check your spam folder for them!). Contact with any questions.


Michael Kingley (Geoffrey Rush), a successful retired businessman and grandfather recounts to his grand-daughter the story of how, as a boy, he rescued and raised an extraordinary orphaned pelican, Mr Percival.

“Themes of loss, grief and separation are pitched at just the right level to resonate with children and adults alike.”- Richard Kuipers, Variety
