Monday, December 23, 2019, 07:00pm - 08:37pm

Gradually succumbing to dementia, George Laurent (Jean Louis Trintignant), the octogenarian patriarch of the Laurents, an affluent upper-bourgeois family, is uncomfortable sharing his palatial manor in Calais, the heart of the infamous migrant jungle, with his twice married son, Thomas (Mathieu Kassovitz), and Anne (Isabelle Huppert), his workaholic daughter who has taken over the family construction business.  Anne has to handle the impact of a disastrous workplace accident caused by her disappointing son Pierre's (Franz Rogowski) negligence, while at the same time, the urgent hospitalization of Thomas' ex-wife from a mysterious poisoning, leads his sulky 13 year old daughter, Eve (Fantine Harduin), to live with her father and his new wife, Anais (Laura Verlinden).  Undoubtedly, in this family, everyone has a skeleton in the closet, and as the fates of the Laurents enmesh with insistent and ignoble desires, a peculiar and disturbing alliance will form.  But in the end, some secrets are bigger than others.  In French with English subtitles


We have moved into Phase 3..

of our phased Re-open Plan.  On September 28, we welcomed the first patron in for a 45 minute computer appointment.  Social distancing requires us to limit public access to 2 computers and there are new procedures and restrictions.  

In spite of restrictions, allowing patrons back into the building is another step forward.  We anticipate opening up a COVID browsing library by the beginning of November with an open area for patrons of all ages to come in and browse new and selected materials from our larger collection.  Staff will be available to assist with requests and you can continue to place materials on hold for pickup.

We will continue to make foyer pickup available for those who don't want to come into the library.  Materials should still be returned into the exterior drop boxes.  You can check the complete list of instructions for more information.
