Library to screen film about World War I

A film about World War I starring Brad Pitt and Aidan Quinn will be screened at 7 p.m. Oct. 17 at the library, 26 North Road.

The screening of “Legends of the Fall” is part of a film series sponsored by the Jamestown Community Chorus to commemorate the war’s centennial.

Set in Montana during the early 19th century, the 1994 film follows three brothers and their father. The unconventional family, which lives in the remote wilderness, is affected by betrayal, history, love, nature and war after one of the brothers is killed in action.

Directed by Edward Zwick, the film was nominated for three Academy Awards, winning the Oscar for best cinematography.

The final selection of the series will be “Paths of Glory,” a Stanley Kubrick film from 1957, which will be screened Nov. 21.
