1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
Glencoe Public Library
Virtual
July 14: Klute
July 21: Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore
Join Francine J. Sanders, film scholar and writer, for another look at the 70's, a groundbreaking decade in American cinema and culture. This two-part series will discuss films that showcase the emerging power of women on the screen, featuring two iconic roles brought to life by two legendary actresses: Jane Fonda in Klute (1971) and Ellen Burstyn in Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore (1974).  

You'll need to watch the film on your own prior to the discussion. Our library system has the film in DVD and Blu-ray formats. The film can also be streamed for about $4 through Amazon Prime, AppleTV, Google Play, Vudu, and YouTube.

You're welcome to attend one or both of the discussions, but attending both will give you the best experience. If you wish to attend both of the discussions, you'll need to sign up separately.

Thursday, July 14, 1-2:30 pm: Klute (dir. Alan J. Pakula, 1971) A small-town detective searching for a missing man has only one lead: a connection with a New York prostitute. With Jane Fonda, Donald Sutherland, Charles Cioffi, and Roy Scheider. Read an in-depth review of the film here

Thursday, July 21, 1-2:30 pm: Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore (dir. Martin Scorsese) A recently widowed woman is on the road with her precocious young son, determined to make a new life for herself as a singer. With Ellen Burstyn, Kris Kristofferson, and Alfred Lutter. Read an in-depth review of the film here
