Come watch the Rappahannock Film Club and the Central Rappahannock Regional Library's presentation of John Houston's Beat the Devil starring Humphrey Bogart at the Headquarters Library on Saturday, August 7th at 2:00 pm.

John Huston directs the legendary Humphrey Bogart in this tongue-in-cheek parody of spy films from the 1940s -- with a script written by the equally legendary Truman Capote. When their steamer goes belly up and strands them in Italy, four criminals try to con a stranger (Bogart) into buying them land that's packed with uranium.

Come join the Rappahannock Film Club and the Central Rappahannock Regional Library as we present Bernardo Bertolucci's The Conformist at the Headquarter's Library on Thursday, May 6th at 7:00 pm.

When the government orders him to kill a political refugee, Marcello (Jean-Louis Trintignant) agrees -- even though his target is his college mentor. Hence, he is "the Conformist," a man who will do absolutely anything to belong. Bernardo Bertolucci directs this thought-provoking drama set in 1930s fascist Italy, a visually complex character study for which he was nominated an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay.

Italian with English subtitles.

Come join the Central Rappahannock Regional Library as we present La Strada, the first film in the An Italian Master: Federico Fellini film series at the Headquarters Library on Monday, March 22nd at 7:00 pm.

The bubbly, waiflike Gelsomina (Guilietta Masina) is a simpleton sold to the gruff, bullying circus strongman Zampanò (Anthony Quinn) as a servant and assistant. Treated no better than an animal, Gelsomina nonetheless falls in love with the brute Zampanò. When they join a small circus they meet Il Matto (Richard Basehart), a clown who enchants Gelsomina and relentlessly taunts Zampanò, whose inability to control his hatred of Il Matto (literally, "the Fool") leads to their expulsion from the circus and eventually to the film's fateful conclusion.

Absurd, baroque, neorealism, surreal, and bizarre are all used to describe Federico Fellini’s film style, but none of them quite capture the true essence of his films. His famous and unique style of storytelling, which was largely autobiographical, blended reality and fantasy and was so distinct that it became known as Felliniesque.

Come join the Rappahannock Film Club and the Central Rappahannock Library as we present Michael Haneke's Caché at the Headquarters Library on Thursday, March 4th at 7:00 pm.

This unsettling drama is a tour de force showcase for Haneke's unparalled ability to inspire fear and paranoia in both his actors and his audience. Renowned French actors Daniel Auteuil and Juliette Binoche play a married couple whose lives begin to crumble when mysterious (and sinister) videotapes start to appear on their doorstep. Even more terrifying, Auteuil slowly pieces together that it may be related to a terrible secret from his past. Taut, tense and electrifying, Caché is deeply disturbing and endlessly fascinating.
