WARSAW — It’s been way too cold outside, so why not snuggle up with a film from the Warsaw Community Public Library? Below is a list of new films.
“The Holdovers” follows a cantankerous instructor (Paul Giamatti) at a New England prep school who is forced to remain on campus during Christmas break to chaperone the handful of students with nowhere to go. Eventually he forms an unlikely bond with one of them, a damaged, brainy troublemaker, and with the school’s head cook, who has just lost a son in Vietnam.
“Dumb Money” is the ultimate David v. Goliath tale, based on the true story of everyday people who flipped the script on Wall Street and got rich by turning GameStop into the world’s hottest company. In the middle of everything is regular guy Keith, who starts it all by sinking his life savings into the stock and posting about it. When his social posts start blowing up, so does his life and the lives of everyone following him. As a stock tip becomes a movement, everyone gets rich — until the billionaires fight back, and both sides find their worlds turned upside down.
“The Marsh King’s Daughter” is an intense thriller. A woman with a secret past returns to the wilds of her youth to face the most dangerous man she’s ever met: her father. Helena’s seemingly ordinary life hides a dangerous truth: her estranged father is the infamous “Marsh King,” the man who kept her and her mother captive in the wilderness for years. When he escapes from prison, Helena is forced to confront her past and find the strength to outsmart the man who taught her everything she knows about surviving in the wild.
“Talk to Me” is graced with a captivating narrative, powerful performances and chilling visuals. The film ventures into a realm of supernatural horror. The premise will grip you from the very first frame — a party taking an unanticipated, disturbing turn sets the stage for a narrative filled with deep-seated family secrets, the struggle of adolescence and the traumatizing impact of loss.
“Oppenheimer” has been called a breathtaking global phenomenon that has captivated audiences around the world. Written for the screen and directed by Christopher Nolan, “Oppenheimer” thrusts audiences into the mind of physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer (Cillian Murphy), whose landmark work on the Manhattan Project created the first atomic bomb.
