Welcome to our Friday Night Film Discussions! Today, we’ll be discussing “The Country Doctor" a social dramedy starring Francois Cluzet.

The way it works:

PRIOR to the meeting (whenever works for your schedule), watch "The Country Doctor" 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!).

This social dramedy stars Francois Cluzet as a devoted and revered countryside doctor whose life gets rocked by a middle-age woman who has come from the city hospital to earn her chops. Challenging each other with opposite views on medicine, the pair eventually bonds and learns from one another.
