Hey everyone, film club is on it's way again, so for once I'm going to put this up well in advance, so you all have plenty of time to decide if you'd like to see it or not! (isn't that nice?) This next film will be Thursday, June 16th at 6:15 PM in the large meeting room located on the second floor of the library.
This next film is:

Pan's Labyrinth (Rated R)
(Directed by Guillermo Del Toro)

The film takes place in Spain, five years after the Spanish civil war, during the early Francoist period. The narative of the film interweaves this real world with a fantasy world centered around an abandoned overgrown labyrinth, and a mysterious faun creature, with which the main character, Ofelia, interacts. Ofelia's stepfather, the Falangist Captain Vidal, hunts the Spanish Maquis who fight against the Fascist reign in the region, while Ofelia's pregnant mother grows increasingly ill. Ofelia meets several strange and magical creatures who become central to her story, leading her through the trials of the old labyrinth garden. The film employs make-up, animatronics and CGI effects to life it's creatures. (From Wikipedia)

As always, Del Toro delivers a tale that is full of wonder and imagination yet grounded in a reality that is, at times, grim. Don't miss this fantastic film!
