"Four Weddings and a Funeral" presented by 1st Friday Film Series

Friday Sep 5, 2014, 7:30 p.m.

Film strip

Monthly series: 1st Friday of every month.

Free and open to public.

NOTE: the film series will resume on September 5th: film screening will not be held in July and August.

September 5th: "Four Weddings and a Funeral" (1993).

This acclaimed British comedy centers on the intermittent romance between a charming (if slightly bumbling) Englishman and a beautiful American woman, who seem to always run into each other at weddings. Indeed, it is at the first of the title's four weddings that Charles (Hugh Grant) and Carrie (Andie McDowell) meet, enjoying a brief but fleeting connection. The spark is rekindled several months later, when they unexpectedly meet at another wedding. Unfortunately, however, Carrie has become engaged to another, a fact that complicates matters for them both. The story may seem simple, but the film is elevated by screenwriter Richard Curtis' ear for witty dialogue and a colorful supporting cast. Director Mike Newell's sympathetic attention to character keeps the proceedings believable, and prevents the film's more serious moments from seeming mawkish. These elements, along with Grant's star-making performance as Charles, helped the film achieve unexpected international success, including an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture.

"The Crooked Branch", Book Talk by Local Author, Jeanine Cummins

Sunday Sep 14, 2014, 1 p.m.

On Sunday, Sept. 14 at 1 p.m. best-selling local author, Jeanine Cummins, will present a book talk on her novel, The Crooked Branch, described by Booklist as, “Wonderfully written, with strong, compelling characters, it is a deeply satisfying combination of sweeping historical saga and modern family drama, a gentle reminder of the ever-reaching influence of family.”

Jeanine studied creative writing at Towson University, before living in Belfast for several years. In 1997, Jeanine moved to New York City, where she spent ten years working in the publishing industry before she turned to writing full time.

Jeanine's fiction is deeply influenced by Ireland, where both her novels are set. Her stories draw on her Irish and Puerto Rican heritage, and the blend is uniquely American.
