The Dude Abides at the Library, Tuesday Night (Sept. 14).

On Tuesday night at 6:30 PM, we will be showing the Coen Brothers' cult classic movie, the Big Lebowski, at Dundee Township Public Library.  The Big Lebowski is probably the most popular and accessible Coen Brothers' work to date.  It is a pinball mystery following the incredibly chill Jeff Lebowski aka. the Dude (Jeff Bridges) around LA in the mid-1990s as he investigates the kidnapping of a trophy wife.  One of the reasons I really enjoy this movie is because of the incredible supporting work by John Goodman and Philip Seymour Hoffman.  Goodman, especially, is funny as former Vietnam vet Walter Sobchak, whose quick, violent temper pretty much make him the anti-Dude.  The soundtrack for the movie is also excellent, featuring everyone from the Monks to Kenny Loggins at his most psychedelic. 

The movie showing is also the first meeting of a new group we have started at the library for twenty and thirty-somethings called Young and Restless (aka. YAR).  Check out our shiny, new Facebook page for more events and info on YAR.
