The Berkeley Heights Public Library will screen "Bride Flight" on Thursday, December 15 at 7 p.m., the last film in its Fall International Film Festival. Eager to escape the damp and suffocating atmosphere of post-war Holland, Dutch beauties Marjorie, Ada and Esther meet each other on the immigration flight to New Zealand, en route to join their future husbands, who are already settled there.During the flight the three young women befriend Frank, a young man who is also immigrating to seek a prosperous life in New Zealand. In their early years in this new country, the lives of Marjorie, Esther, Ada and Frank become entangled in brief relationships of love, lust and family before losing touch. It is only when the women reunite again fifty years later at Frank’s funeral that they discover how much their lives had become intertwined through their different relationships with Frank. Inspired by the true story of the Last Great Air Race from London to Christchurch in October 1953, the KLM aircraft that won the race carried 40 Dutch immigrants to New Zealand. This film is 130 minutes long and is in Dutch and English with English subtitles. Rated R. No registration required. The door to the meeting room will be opened at 6:45 p.m. The library is located at 290 Plainfield Avenue in Berkeley Heights.
