August Movie Night at Phoenixville Public Library

The next Movie Night at Phoenixville Library is Thursday, August 13 at 7:00 PM. “The United States of Leland” (2003, rated R, running time 108 min.) will be shown. After 15-year-old Leland (Ryan Gosling) commits a chilling crime, he is sent to juvenile hall where he meets Pearl (Don Cheadle), a teacher and aspiring writer who dreams of making Leland's story into a book. As Pearl digs deeper into Leland's life and the people caught up in it, he uncovers Leland's disturbing motive. The tables soon turn when the enigmatic teen forces Pearl to examine his own morally questionable behavior.

This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. Those who stay for an informal discussion following the screening may suggest a forthcoming movie.
