This Friday, October 9th, at 7:30 p.m., we'll be showing the classic film GASLIGHT. The announcement was made last week at the Darien Domestic Violence Task Force's annual proclamation - that October is Domestic Violence Awareness month. (The ceremony was held in the Library's Courtyard (pictured) last Thursday morning.)
The film, from 1944, stars Charles Boyer, Ingrid Bergman, and Joseph Cotton. It's a psychological thriller - one which resulted in a Best Actress Oscar for Ingrid Bergman, a film classic, and a glimpse into the insidious world of psychological torture. From this film we also get the term "gaslighting," which means the ruthless manipulation of an individual into believing something other than the truth.
It's a great movie and we hope that you'll join us for this special screening.
Refreshments will be served.
