April 19, Celebrate World Cinema  Day @ Your Library
The library's Spring movie night series wraps up this month on World Cinema Day, Thursday, April 19th at 6:30 PM with Hugo, a 3-D family friendly adventure based on the Carnegie prize-winning children's novel, The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick. Hugo has been called a love letter to the history of cinema, an "exquisite fantasy" that invites its audience to "Come and dream with me".
The film is ostensibly a child’s adventure about a young orphan called Hugo (Asa Butterfield, from The Boy With Striped Pyjamas) struggling to survive within a French railway station, where he’s been dragged as child labor by his uncle (Ray Winstone) after the untimely death of Hugo’s dad (Jude Law). Hugo lives and works inside the station's huge clocks while he struggles to avoid discovery and  decode the mystery of an automatic writing machine, "automaton", that he believes will reveal a secret message from his dead father. The secret Hugo discovers with the help of a girl who befriends him(Chloe Grace Moretz) and her mysterious uncle (Sir. Ben Kingsley) is one that changes everyone's life and leads Hugo finally to a safe and loving place.
Hugo has a magic that’s rare in modern movies and is "easily the most gorgeous live-action movie ever made in 3D". Bring the whole family and join us at the library on April 19th for a thrilling journey that critics are calling "the stuff that dreams are made of".  Hugo, 120 minutes, rated PG. This event is open to the public and free of charge.
