The film “An Unfinished Life” will be shown at the library on Wednesday, April 26 at 6:30 p.m. Elna Gilkyson is a tough skinned, retired rancher who has shut himself off from his family following his only son’s death a decade ago. Out of the blue, the very person he blames for his son’s accident arrives on his doorstep. His ex-daughter-in-law Jean has survived abuse and decides that the only way to care for her daughter is to seek help from her ex-father-in-law. This unusual meeting results in two people discovering a reservoir of forgiveness that neither of them knew existed. The film stars Robert Redford, Jennifer Lopez, Morgan Freeman, Josh Lucas and is 100 minutes long.
