Movie Matinee at the Acushnet Public Library, 232 Middle Rd., Acushnet, on Tues., 10/29, at 2 p.m. showing At Eternity’s Gate, 18+. Please bring a covered beverage and a snack if you wish. Watch the movie, enjoy a bit of discussion, and help select next month’s movie.
At Eternity’s Gate is a 2018 biographical drama film about the final years of painter Vincent van Gogh’s life. The film dramatizes the controversial theory put forward by van Gogh biographers Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith, in which they speculate that van Gogh’s death was caused by mischief rather than suicide. Presented through a license with Movie Licensing USA.
