A boy, a lion and two grumpy old men walk into the library.....

Movie Night at Your Library, Thursday November 21st, 6:30 PM
It’s show time at the Boscobel Library next week. Our winter movie series continues on Thursday, November 21st at 6:30 PM with a dramatic comedy involving a boy, a lion, a bankrupt circus, two grumpy old great-uncles and some very surprising new tricks. While we are prohibited by licensing restrictions from giving the actual title of the movie, we can describe it:

 "In this family-friendly comedy drama, Walter (Haley Joel Osment) is a shy and bookish boy just short of his teens whose mother impulsively decides to leave him for the summer with his eccentric grand-uncles, Hub (Robert Duvall) and Garth (Michael Caine). Walter isn't especially happy about being left in the middle of Texas with two old men, while Hub and Garth aren't too pleased to be stuck minding a boy, especially one who isn't accustomed to hunting, fishing, or firearms. When Walter starts hearing local gossip about his uncles' wild and woolly pasts, he begins asking a few questions, and while Hub and Garth don't enjoy having the boy poking into their pasts, as they start telling tales of their youthful adventures, they find themselves itching for some new adventures in their lives. Soon Walter is a semi-willing accomplice as his elderly guardians rediscover the wild, impulsive spirit of youth." Rated PG, This event is open to the public and there’s no charge to attend. For more information, please call the library at 375-5723.
