Five Minutes of Heaven

Come join the Rappahannock Film Club as we present Five Minutes of Heaven (2009) starring Liam Neeson on Saturday, April 2nd at 2pm at the Headquarters Library.

From the Oscar®-nominated director of Downfall, the BAFTA-winning screenwriter of Omagh, and star Liam Neeson comes a startling new thriller inspired by true events: In 1975, 17-year-old Irish-Protestant Alistair Little assassinated 19-year-old Catholic Jim Griffin in his Ulster home. The murder was witnessed by Griffin s 11-year-old brother Joe. Thirty years later, Little (Neeson) has been rehabilitated and released from prison, while Joe Griffin (James) remains traumatized and bitter. But when a television talk show decides to bring them together for a live on-air reconciliation, two men haunted by one moment must come face-to-face with their own worlds of pain, violence and vengeance. This is a must-see drama that dares to explore both sides of Northern Ireland s troubled past as it comes to terms with its still uncertain future.

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.

The Rappahannock Film Club presents . . . Caché

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.
