The Nominee Nights film series returns to Pinney Library for another year of nominated films and performance. Please join us for one or all of the films in this series of new release, award nominated movies showing in HD on the big screen! 2/17 - Hell or High Water A divorced father and his ex-con older brother resort to a desperate scheme in order to save their family's ranch in West Texas. (2016|102mins|USA) IMDb entry: “Hell or High Water” doesn’t go where you expect. Pine and Foster genuinely convince you they’re brothers, with a punchy affectionate conflicted bond that reaches all the way back. At times, they could be a cracker-barrel version of the love-hate siblings portrayed by Ethan Hawke and Philip Seymour Hoffman in Sidney Lumet’s “Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead.” “Hell or High Water” channels the uncut adrenaline of crime, but it’s also a moral drama that takes the measure of each destabilizing action it shows us. The movie is on the right side of things, even when it barely knows where that is." Owen Gleiberman - Variety There is room for 50 guests and seating will be on a first come first serve basis. This film is rated R by the MPAA. Children under 17 must be with an adult. Light refreshments to be provided by the Friends of Pinney Library.
