Independent Film Night – Schneider vs. Bax – May 11th – 6:30PM

The Pollard Memorial Library has partnered with Film Movement, Inc. to bring award winning, independent and foreign films for you on second Thursday of each month. Join us May 11th at 6:30PM for Schneider vs. Bax – a film by Alex van Warmerdam

“Putting the “dead” back in deadpan, the ninth feature of van Warmerdam is his most Coen brothers-like film yet, a western in the Dutch wetlands that’s as unpredictable as it is darkly funny.”

– Body van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter


“…the more absurd the circumstances, the more entertaining the movie gets.”

– Peter Debruge, Variety
