Published 8:01 am, Sunday, February 26, 2012
Westport Public Library will present two movies and the PBS series "Downton Abbey" during March.
On Tuesday, March 6, at 10 a.m., the library will screen "Miss Representation," a film exploring the relationship between how women are treated in the media and their under-representation in positions of power and influence. The 90-minute film, made in 2011, includes interviews with Condoleezza Rice, Nancy Pelosi, Katie Couric, Rachel Maddow, and Gloria Steinem, according to a library news release.
The film will be shown again 6:30 p.m. Monday, March 26.
On Thursday, March 22, at 6:30 p.m., the library will show the film "Moneyball," the Oscar-nominated true tale about Oakland A's general manager Billy Beane trying to reinvent his team on a tight budget. The film, made in 2011, is 133 minutes long.
Starting Thursday, March 22 and repeating every Thursday until May 17 except Thursday, April 19, the library will show the Masterpiece Theatre series "Downton Abbey" from 2 to 4 p.m. The series is set in the fictional Downton Abbey, a Yorkshire country house, and follows the lives of an aristocratic family and their servants during the reign of King George V, the release states.
All screenings are free and open to the public in the library's McManus Room.
