Do you miss the 60’s and 70’s?  Then come by the Murphy Library as we take a ride through Bob Dylan’s life in I’m Not There, this Thursday’s movie, March 29 at 4 and 6 p.m.  Director Todd Haynes has created a memorable trip.  The film runs 135 minutes and it is rated R.

Six characters appear as parts of Dylan’s persona by actors Cate Blanchett (who is Bob Dylan), Ben Whishaw, Christian Bale, Richard Gere, Marcus Carl Franklin (my personal favorite, he goes by the name, Woody Guthrie) and Heath Ledger.

 

Dylan’s songs serenade you, like The Times They Are A-Changin’ and Knockin on Heaven’s Door.  Or Sad-Eyed Lady of the Lowlands, Stuck inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again, All Along the Watchtower, and The Lonesome Death of Hattie Caroll.  Don’t worry, there are over forty songs, you will hear your favorite sooner or later.
