1917 - Friday Free Films at the Library

Doors open at 6:30; the film starts at 7:-00 pm.

A large-scale film based on a simple story. During World War I, two British soldiers -- Lance Cpl. Schofield and Lance Cpl. Blake -- receive seemingly impossible orders. In a race against time, they must cross over into enemy territory to deliver a message that could potentially save 1,600 of their fellow comrades -- including Blake's own brother.

Although it lost Best Picture, 1917, Sam Mendes’ single-shot, World War I extravaganza, was rewarded with the most crafts craft Oscars at the 2020 Academy Awards including camera choreography, sound mixing, and visual special effects.
