A movie nominated for the 2012 Best Picture Award will be the next feature at the Friends of the Plainville Public Library movie matinee series on Thursday, Oct. 10 at 2:30 p.m. at the library. “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” was based on the book of the same name about a family affected by the 9/11 attacks on New York.
Oskar is convinced that his father (Tom Hanks), who died in the 9/11 attacks on the WorldTradeCenter, has left a final message for him hidden somewhere in the city. Feeling disconnected from his grieving mother (Sandra Bullock) and driven by a relentlessly active mind that refuses to believe in things that can’t be observed, Oskar begins searching New York City for the lock that fits a mysterious key he found in his father’s closet. His journey through the five boroughs takes him beyond his own loss to a greater understanding of the observable world around him.
The program is free.
The Plainville Public Library is at 56 East Main St., Plainville
