6/15 Green’s movie nights are designed as community outreach events to attract visitors to enjoy the garden and share a classic film, refreshments and the camaraderie of neighbors. The evenings include announcements welcoming people to the garden and providing information on garden membership, other garden events and our public composting site which will be available during the event.
Our second film of the season will be BROOKLYN (2015). This film tells the profoundly moving story of Eilis Lacey (Saoirse Ronan), a young Irish immigrant navigating her way through 1950s Brooklyn. Lured by the promise of America, Eilis departs Ireland and the comfort of her mother's home for the shores of New York City. The initial shackles of homesickness quickly diminish as a fresh romance sweeps Eilis into the intoxicating charm of love. But soon, her new vivacity is disrupted by her past, and Eilis must choose between two countries and the lives that exist within. (C) Fox Searchlight
