“Off White Lies” Screening At The Manchester Branch

The Manchester Library will screen, “Off White Lies” on Wednesday, July 17, at 12:00 noon, 3:00 p.m. and again at 6:00 pm. See this popular foreign comedy film on a large screen without paying the admission fee of a movie theater!

After years of living apart from her dad, Libby, an introverted yet sharp-witted teenager, is sent to live with him is Israel. Her arrival coincides with the outbreak of the second Lebanon war. Libby quickly discovers that her dad, Shaul, is an infantile eccentric, and that he is ‘in-between apartments’ (in other words, homeless). Shaul comes up with a creative plan to put a roof over their heads – they pose as refugees from the bombarded northern region of Israel, and are taken in by a well-off family in Jerusalem. Finally in a ‘normal’ household, Shaul and Libby begin to build their father-daughter relationship, but their false identities can’t last forever, especially as Libby unleashes teenage fury at the lies permeating her life; those she must tell now, and those she’s been fed since childhood.

The dialogue is in Hebrew and English with English subtitles and is 86 minutes long. It is part of the library’s monthly Foreign/Independent Film Series. Registration is not required. This program is open all ages although it is geared toward adults.

The Manchester Branch of the Ocean County Library is located at 21 Colonial Drive in Manchester Township. For more information call 732.657.7600 or go online to http://www.theoceancountylibrary.org.
