Gravity- the movie you can checkout through the library

Overwhelming Physical Experience This Sunday @Richland Library Main

New Yorker's David Denby said that Gravity is "not a film of ideas, like Kubrick's techno-mystical 2001, but it's an overwhelming physical experience -- a challenge to the senses that engages every kind of dread." Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity is about disaster in space. As astronauts repair the Hubble telescope, debris destroys the telescope and their way home. These astronauts end up spinning in orbit, frantically trying to avoid disaster. Movie goers will be on the edge of their seat throughout this award winning film.

Gravity received awards and nominations in a variety of categories with particular praise for its direction, cinematography, score, and visual effects. The film received ten nominations at the 86th Academy Awards, the most nominations of 2014's ceremony tied with American Hustle. The nominations included Best Picture, Best Director for Cuarón, Best Actress for Bullock, and Best Original Score for Price, and others. It went on to be the biggest winner at the ceremony, picking up seven awards including Best Director for Cuarón, Best Cinematography for Lubezki, Best Original Score for Price, and Best Visual Effects.

Gravity stars Sandra Bullock, George Clooney, and Ed Harris.

Join us for this overwhelming physical experience on Sunday, July 6 at 3 P.M. @Main Library

Amazon Says: (Applause Books). He's famous for being named People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive, his penchant for practical jokes, and his vow never to remarry, as well as his Oscar-winning and Emmy-nominated acting career. But George Clooney's reputation as "the mayor of every movie set he's on" belies his essential seriousness, as a businessman and in his ascendancy to the Hollywood A-list. In George Clooney: The Last Great Movie Star , Kimberly Potts traces the star's life from the small-town boy to big-screen star. After spending a decade languishing in failed TV series, he slowly and deliberately built a resume that took him from TV stardom on ER to a winning film career as a serious actor, writer, producer and director. Along the way are his early attempts to break out into film (including his Batman movie flop),his many well-publicized romances, his political and humanitarian efforts, and his shrewdly developed formula for choosing smart blockbuster movie projects that he uses to finance his more personal passion projects, such as Syriana and good night, and good luck. , finding success with both. less...

Amazon Says: From ultimate media insider Piers Morgan, an adrenaline-fueled account of life at CNN, exclusive stories about his celebrity encounters, and details about his high-profile decision to take on the issue of gun control at its historical tipping point. When Piers Morgan arrived in the US, he was a thoughtful outsider and observer of our country—a modern-day Alexis de Tocqueville, if a limousine-chasing British tabloid editor could be called that. From rushing to the roof of the studio that filmed America’s Got Talent so that he could broadcast live breaking news about the tsunami in Japan, only to rush back and judge a singing, dancing Christmas tree; from being snubbed by Bill O’Reilly, who pretended not to recognize him (despite the largest cable news marketing campaign in television history) to, moments later, consenting to take a picture with O’Reilly’s daughter, who happened to be a big fan of America’s Got Talent (Bill was immediately scolded by security for “photographing the talent,” which is a comeuppance more artful than one could make up); from declaring in no uncertain terms that the 2011 shooting of Gabby Giffords would change American guns laws as surely as the 1996 massacres in Dunblain, Scotland, and Tasmania, Australia, had done, only to rail in disbelief the following year at the Newtown, Connecticut, massacre in 2012, and the gun lobby’s insistence that it was “too soon” to discuss the problem of guns in America. The hit HBO series Newsroom posits that America needs a newsman who has a point of view, who does not suffer fools, and who does not give “equal time” to idiocy. Watching Piers Morgan, one gets the sense that he is as close to the character Will McAvoy as we have in this country presently. A scrappier version of Anderson Cooper. A thinking man’s bruiser. Piers gives an adrenaline-fueled account of life at CNN and a reflective and heartfelt account of his continuing love affair with America, including his high profile participation in the gun debate. He is also happy to weave personal material on his wife and family, so you have a sense of really knowing the man. less...
