STAR CINEMA AND GOLDFIELDS LIBRARIES PRESENT: STAR CINEMA BOOK CLUB
On the last Tuesday of each month we will screen a film adaptation of a book which we encourage you to read before or after seeing the film.
Genre: Drama. Dir: Jon Avnet. Country: USA.
On one of trapped housewife Evelyn Couch’s (Kathy Bates) Wednesday nursing home visits, she encounters Ninny Threadgoode (Jessica Tandy), a colourful old woman who brightens Evelyn’s outlook by sharing tales from her past. As Ninny recounts the exploits of her free-spirited sister-in-law Idgie (Mary Stuart Masterson), owner of a small Alabama café in the 1920s, and the bond Idgie shared with her friend Ruth (Mary-Louise Parker), Evelyn gains the confidence to change her own life for the better.
