The Florence Community Library’s December movie discussion will focus on film biographies.  Come to the library Saturday, December 9 at 1:00 pm for a brief presentation, followed by a free showing of a recent movie based on a best-selling memoir.


Biographies and memoirs are as much a staple of film as they are of literature.  Film biographies of historical figures were produced as early as 1910, and “biopics” remain popular among moviegoers.  Enjoy a short presentation about biographical films, looking at examples from several different points in motion picture history.  We’ll look at some films that tried to stay close to actual history, and others that “stretched the truth” for dramatic effect.


The discussion will be followed by a free showing of a recent biographical film.  Popcorn and water will be available free while supplies last.  You are also encouraged to bring snacks and soft drinks to the show!
