New DVDs: Wednesday, September 1

The Macedon Public Library is fully open for in-person visits. Computers are available and the Discovery Room is also open. Masks are strongly encouraged for all patrons, even if you have been vaccinated. We will continue to offer “Grab and Go” services for those who prefer to place their books on hold online and then pick them up in the cabinet outside the library.

Here are a few more of the new DVDs we’ve received lately:

Queen Bees

While her house undergoes repairs, fiercely independent senior Helen temporarily moves into a nearby retirement community. Once behind the doors of Pine Grove Senior Community, she encounters lusty widows, cutthroat bridge tournaments, and a hotbed of bullying ‘mean girls’ the likes of which she hasn’t encountered since high school, all of which leaves her yearning for the solitude of home. But somewhere between flower arranging and water aerobics Helen discovers that it’s never too late to make new friends and perhaps even find a new love.

The Father

‘Nothing is as it seems.’ Having just frightened away his recent caregiver, Anthony (Anthony Hopkins), a London octogenarian gradually succumbing to dementia, feels abandoned when his concerned daughter Anne (Olivia Colman) tells him she’s moving to Paris. Confused and upset, against the backdrop of a warped perspective and his rapid, heart-rending mental decline, Anthony is struggling to differentiate between his perception of reality and that of his daughter and caregivers. Now, as faded memories and glimpses of lucidity trigger sudden mood swings, dear ones, Anthony’s surroundings, and even time itself become distorted. Why has his younger daughter stopped visiting (she is deceased)? Who are the strangers that burst in on Anthony (a new caregiver Laura – Imogen Poots, a nurse Catherine – Olivia Williams, and Anne’s husband, Paul – Rufus Sewell)?
