Movie Recommendation: Bicycle Thieves (Ladri di biciclette)

Bicycle Thieves  tells the story of Antonio Ricci, an unemployed husband and father living in post WWII Italy.  Day after day he waits for employment when finally he catches a break, but must have a bicycle to fulfill his duties.  Having pawned his bicycle prior to help with his family’s needs, his wife comes up with a solution to get it back. Thieves on the other hand have their own intentions for Antonio’s bike. 
Considered to be one of the most influential films in cinema history,  Bicycle Thieves  captures the human essence of desperation and what one may do when they feel like they have no other choice.

Staff Book review: The Chill: A Novel, 2020, by Scott Carson

“Wow! This is one terrific horror/suspense/disaster novel. Characters you root for and a story that grips from the first page.” —Stephen King, #1  New York Times  bestselling author
That glowing endorsement from Stephen King was all I needed to pique my interest in reading this novel by 'Scott Carson.' Our story begins with the local sheriff's "loser" son, who is teetering on a serious substance-abuse problem and repeated run-ins with the law that test his widowed father's limited patience with him. Having washed out of the Coast Guard elite rescue swimmer training program because of his temper, Aaron Ellsworth is about to stumble into a kind of trouble that he couldn't have imagined when he woke up in the town lock-up this morning. The story goes on, shifting from multiple points of view, including the sheriff, himself, to give the reader a full view of the situation at and around the Chillewaukee reservoir (the Chill), and the town (and the nightmare) submerged beneath. What really happened in the times before and since its flooding? If the mysteries of ruined cities or hauntings appeal to you, try reading this one. It is surprising, chilling, and well-paced, with developed characters, motivations, and POVs. Then try to figure out which author is actually behind that pen-name.

Staff Movie review: Life is Beautiful (PG-13)

Guido (Roberto Benigni) – a charming waiter with a colorful imagination and an irresistible sense of humor – has created a beautiful life for his young family. When that life is threatened by WWII, he must rely on those strengths to save them from an unthinkable fate.
Well, if you ever wanted a movie that could remind you of the resilience of the human spirit this would be it. The Oscar winning Italian-language film, frequently cited on top movie lists of all time, is a film about love, optimism, courage, and inner strength in the face of adversity. This one will tug at your heartstrings and leave a lasting impact on you. 
I cried. My parents cried. Even the cat probably cried. A box of tissues is advised. 
Available on Hoopla Digital with English subtitles.
