Virtual – Friday Night Film Discussion: “Storm Boy” *For Adults
January 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
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 services, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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
Running Time: 99 mins
Features: Erik Thomson, Finn Little, Geoffrey Rush, Jai Courtney, Morgana Davies, Trevor Jamieson
