Starring Sarah Greene, Moe Dunford, and Ellie O’Halloran, Rosie tells the story of a mother trying to protect her family when they become homeless. Finding a room for a night is hard, and finding somewhere permanent is even harder.

Rosie examines how the love and strength of a family can endure, even in times of crisis. This film is rated PG-13. For more information, contact the library at 805-237-3870.
