October screenings explore life and love

The October Movies and More screening will be held on Sunday October 11 from 4pm and will screen The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Unfolding Florence.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (M) will screen at 4pm. This romantic drama tells the tale of Benjamin Button (Brad Pitt), born in 1918 in New Orleans as a baby with wrinkles, cataracts, and arthritis. Benjamin will age backwards, getting younger as he watches those around him growing older. Included in that group are his adoptive mother, Queenie (Taraji P. Henson), and Daisy (Cate Blanchett), the love of his life whom he meets when she is just a little girl and he is an old man. They age in reverse, but despite Benjamin's globe-trotting adventures, their lives repeatedly intersect.

Unfolding Florence (PG) will screen at 7pm. In 1977, when the flamboyant designer Florence Broadhurst was found murdered in her studio, few people claimed to know the real Florence. Even her age, which people speculated to be in the 50s or 60s, as discovered to be actually 76. So begins the unravelling of the history of a lifetime so full of surprises that it could only be harnessed by an equally spirited documentary. Back then, invention and reinvention were the keys to Florence's existence. Born in the Outback of Australia, she became a singer in Shanghai, proprietor of a fashion boutique in London, and an Australian painter. She was also a socialite, lover, wife, and mother with just a few name and identity changes in between.
