Come join the Rappahannock Film Club and the Central Rappahannock Regional Library as we show David Lean's Brief Encounter (1945) on Saturday, Febrary 6th at 2:00 pm.  This British film, based on Noel Coward's stage play "Still Life," explores the thrill and pain of an illicit romance in 1945 Britain. From a chance meeting on a train platform, a middle-aged doctor (Trevor Howard) and a suburban housewife (Celia Johnson) enter into a quiet yet passionate love affair, knowing there's no possibility for a lasting relationship. The two meet every Thursday at a small café at the station to play out their doomed romance.
