The film, “White Oleander” will be shown at the library as part of the Faces of Family series on Thursday, October 5 at 6 p.m. Based on the popular bestseller by Janet Fitch, “White Oleander” traces a teenager’s remarkable journey to independence. Alison Lohman portrays Astrid, struggling to get a foothold in life as she copes with her manipulative mother (Michelle Pfeiffer) and with the challenges of living in a succession of foster homes (Robin Wright Penn and Renee Zellweger play two foster mothers). Energized by the real and revealing performances of a stellar cast, “White Oleander” bewitches – and haunts – from beginning to end.
The film will be followed by a discussion which will include participants at the Wyoming Women’s Center via audio. A free meal will also be provided, for more information stop by the library or call 334-3490.
