Foreign Film Club

Thursday August 8th 7PM

Purple Noon

August’s selection is the French film Purple Noon (“Plein Soleil”) and we will enjoy a glass of French wine during the film.

This 1960 adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s novel The Talented Mr. Ripley, stars Alain Delon as Tom Ripley, a duplicitous American charmer in Rome on a mission to bring his privileged, devil-may-care acquaintance Philippe Greenleaf back to the United States; what initially seems a carefree tale of friendship soon morphs into a thrilling saga of seduction, identity theft, and murder.

$10 admission
