STAFF PICKS from the Digital Services Department
The Count of Monte Cristo (PG-13)
This movie adaptation of Alexandre Dumas' literary classic by the same name is an easy recommendation for a movie night. For those unfamiliar with the plot, The Count of Monte Cristo is an adventurous tale of betrayal, vengeance, and reckoning set in early 19th century Europe. Jim Caviezel and Richard Harris offer great performances with an excellent portrayal of the loathsome Fernand Mondego by Guy Pearce. While it did not win any major awards, it still remains one of those films I have no problem watching again on TV.

If you enjoy the movie, also check out the novel on the Libby app or Overdrive!
