It is the 1930’s and Novalyne Price is a schoolteacher in Texas when she meets handsome but moody writer Robert Howard. He has found his calling in writing pulp fiction stories for magazines. One is his best will be “Conan the Barbarian.”

The Murphy Library is showing The Whole Wide World, a story of writers, love, and friendship in rural Texas and is full of great acting, this Thursday at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. The film is rated PG and running time is 111 minutes. This 1996 film stars Vincent D’Onofrio and Rene Zellweger, for whom it was a career starter. They make a great team.  In fact, Zellweger thanked D’Onofrio when she won an Oscar in 2003 for Cold Mountain.

D’Onofrio is from Brooklyn but he has strong ties to North Carolina along with his father Gene and sister Elizabeth. They founded the River Run Film Festival in Winston-Salem.

Call the library at 837-2417.
