Movies on the Mississippi is pleased to announce that we have booked films for the rest of the MOTM season. Working with the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) we have chosen a mix of world-class films.
On April 12, come and see Pride – set in Margaret Thatcher’s England during the National Mineworkers strike, it’s the story of a group of gay and lesbian activists who raise money to support the families of the striking miners and the partnership between these two communities as they fight for the same cause.
On May 31, it will be Big News from Grand Rock – With his small town newspaper facing bankruptcy, Editor Leonard Crane begins inventing stories based on old movies. What happens when Leonard discovers that one of his stories may be true?
For our final film on June 14, join us for Still Alice – See Julianne Moore in her Oscar-award winning role as Alice Howland, happily married and a renowned linguistics professor. When she receives a devastating diagnosis, Alice and her family find their bonds tested.
