Here is a new idea for a French love story: tell it documentary style. The ones falling in love become the narrators in 2 Autums, 3 Winters, the next Murphy Library movie from Film Movement. The screening is Thursday at 6 p.m. Running time is 93 minutes and it has adult themes. In French with English subtitles.

Arman meets Amelie in the park – they run into each, literally, then smile, apologize and get back to running. But eye contact has been made and Arman keeps looking for her again. Separately, Arman’s best friend, Benjamin, has a terrible calamity and ends up in the hospital. And while he is there, he meets someone very special.

There are ups and downs including a tough climb up a mountain. But then, that is what love’s all about.

The Murphy Library is showing a Film Movement selection, Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow ? about a quiet optometrist who begins to question his marriage and his choice to live a straight lifestyle. Screening Thursday at 6 p.m. In Mandarin with English subtitles. Running time 106 minutes.

Book lovers know that turning over the last page of a good novel means another mystery, history or blistery tome is waiting in the wings. It’s the same with chili. This Thursday the Murphy Library has a treat for the chili lovers who left the Cherokee County Chamber’s Chili Cook Off last Saturday with smiles on their faces.2014ChiliLunchJeffMurphy10-15

Want to learn a little Spanish? The next time it rains for days in Cherokee County, look out the window, sigh, and say “Tanta agua.” It translates as “so much water.” Tanta Agua is also the name of the next movie from Film Movement at the Murphy Library this Thursday at 6 p.m. The film is in Spanish with subtitles in English.

Even though this story takes place in Uruguay, there are lots to relate to, especially the teenage daughter when she rolls her eyes.

Alberto is a divorced father who doesn’t often see his children. He takes his 14-year-old daughter and ten-year-old son to a warm springs spa in northwest Uruguay for a few days and family time with them. Unfortunately, it begins to rain and doesn’t stop…for days. In other words, you guessed it, “tanta agua.” Ever been on a trip like that? What is a teenager to do but create a few diversions for herself.

Do not come to the next Murphy Library movie if you don’t like sweets! Jenna, the main character works in a diner, and besides waiting on tables, she is the official pie baker. The Murphy Library is showing Waitress, a film filled with laughter and tears this Thursday at 6 p.m. It is rated PG-13 and running time is 108 minutes. Read the rest of this entry »
