Film Club - "The Dynamiter" (USA)
All 14-year-old Robbie every wanted was a family. Yet, as another Mississippi summer begins, his wayward mother has run off again, and he's left to burn the days caring for his half brother, Fess. As the deep days and nights pass without her return, and with older brother Lucas dangerously in their lives again, Robbie must face the fact that his dreams may never come true. With social services looming over them, Robbie may even lose Fess, the only family he's ever really had.
This summer, the Film Club joins the 2013 Adult Summer Reading Program to bring you GroundBreaking Films! All Film Club programs are free and open to the public and are shown in the library’s upstairs meeting room. Selected films may contain objectionable material; therefore Film Club attendance is recommended for adults, aged 18 and over. Coffee, tea and popcorn are provided, and a lively discussion follows each film.
