Women’s History Month Film Series at Scotch Plains Public Library

On Fridays at 1:00pm in March, the Scotch Plains Public Library will celebrate Women’s History Month with films directed by women.

On March 21, join the library staff for Bright Star (PG, 119 min).

Bright Star explores nineteenth century poet John Keats and the girl next door, Fanny Brawne.  They started out as unlikely lovers who were totally at odds with each other. However, when Brawne offers to help Keats nurse his seriously ill brother, the two soon became involved in an unstoppable romance that only his untimely death at age 25 could bring to a shattering end.

Polley reveals the essence of family as she uncovers the secrets buried deep within.
