For adults, the coming of shorter days and colder weather mean it’s showtime at the Boscobel library! Our winter movie series will begin Thursday, October 24th at 6:30 PM with Clint Eastwood's latest baseball movie.
While we are prohibited by licensing restrictions from giving the actual title of the movie, we can describe it,
"Gus Lobel (Clint Eastwood) has been one of the best scouts in baseball for
decades, but, despite his efforts to hide it, age is starting to catch up with
him. Nevertheless, Gus-who can tell a pitch just by the crack of the bat-refuses
to be benched for what may be the final innings of his career. He may not have a
choice. The front office of the Atlanta Braves is starting to question his
judgment, especially with the country's hottest batting phenom on deck for the
draft. The one person who might be able to help
is also the one person Gus would never ask: his daughter, Mickey (Amy Adams), an
associate at a high-powered Atlanta law firm whose drive and ambition has put
her on the fast track to becoming partner. Against her better judgment, and over
Gus's objections, Mickey joins him on his latest scouting trip to North
Carolina, jeopardizing her own career to save his."
Forced to spend time together for the first time in years, each reveals long-held truths about their past. The 80 year old Eastwood puts in a classic, tough-guy with a heart of gold performance that his fans will recognize and enjoy. The movie also provides great scout's-eye views of several major league ball parks and introduces Justin Timberlake as an aspiring ballplayer and potential romantic interest for Mickey. Rated PG-13.
This event is open to the public and there is no charge to attend. for more information, please call the library at 375-5723.
