Summer Movie Series

Stop by the library auditorium at 1pm on Tuesday, August 9 to catch the 2000 movie The Perfect Storm, directed by Wolfgang Petersen. 130 minutes, rated PG 13.

Starring George Clooney, Mark Wahlberg, John C. Reilly, Allen Payne, and Diane Lane.

Billy Tyne is a sword-fishing-boat captain out of Gloucester, highly competitive and stung by a string of poor outings. His crew is hardly back in port when he tells them he’s going out again, even though it’s October and the weather can turn ugly. Five join him: the young Bobby, newly in love; Murph, a devoted father recently divorced; Sully, a guy Murph despises; Bugsy, who’s finally met a woman who likes him; and Alfred, a quiet Jamaican. They catch little, so they sail east, with Tyne ignoring storm warnings behind him. Finally, the fish bite, but the ice machine fails. Should they head home through the storm of the century, or wait it out and lose their catch?
