We kick off our Take 2 Tuesday series in September with the film that won Oscars for Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, and for Best Supporting Actor (Ali) at the 91st Academy Awards. Viggo Mortenson plays a working-class Italian-American bouncer who becomes the driver for an African-American jazz pianist, played by Mahershala Ali. The two embark on a tour of venues through the 1960s American South in this tale of unlikely friendship. Rated PG-13. Run time 130 minutes.
The film will be shown on Tuesday, September 24th at 11:00 AM in the Library’s Meeting Room. Refreshments are provided, courtesy of the Friends of the Powhatan Library.
