Library Offers Film Discussion: Driveways

Movie cover with people's faces in squares

Free, downloadable film on family, relationships, and connection

PASO ROBLES, CA –  August 12, 2020  The Paso Robles City Library’s new monthly film discussion series provides an opportunity to view a selected film from the library’s free hoopla digital platform then meet up on ZOOM to discuss the film. On Thursday, September 10, 7:00-8:00 pm, the public is invited to discuss Driveways.

Kathy and her son, Cody, have arrived in a small New York town to clean out the home of Kathy’s sister, April, following her recent death. While Kathy is engaged in the sorting process, Cody, a sensitive boy who has trouble fitting in with his peers, befriends Del, a lonely Korean War vet, who lives next door. This friendship becomes the central relationship of the story, helping to define concepts of family, the importance of inter-generational relationships, and loneliness that resonate not only with the characters in the film, but with viewers as well. Reviewer David Fear from Rolling Stone stated, “For a movie about isolation and the risk of reaching out, it’s a generous example of how nourishing a sense of connection really is.”  

Space is limited. Registration is required for each participant to receive the ZOOM meeting information. This class is for ages 16+.
