“No Country For Old Men” at the Manchester Branch

On Thursday, December 4 the Manchester Branch Library’s monthly program, “From Page to Screen: A Book and Film Discussion” will take place, starting at 1:00 pm. The group meets the first Thursday each month to discuss an assigned book and view a film adaptation of that title.

The subject of December’s meeting is a crime thriller set in rural Texas. Llewelyn Moss discovers the remains of several drug runners who have all killed each other in an exchange gone violently wrong. Rather than report the discovery to the police, Moss decides to keep the two million dollars he found with the bodies. This puts the psychopathic killer, Anton Chigurh on his trail. As Chigurgh dispassionately murders innocent bystanders as well as nearly every rival in his pursuit of the money Moss desperately attempts to keep one step ahead. Meanwhile, Sherrif Ed Tom Bell blithely oversees the investigation even as he struggles to face the sheer enormity of the crimes he is attempting to thwart. The book, No Country for Old Men was written by Cormac McCarthy. The movie version that will be screened at the library on December 4 stars Tommy Lee Jones, Javier Bardem and Josh Brolin. It is rated R and is 122 minutes long. Ethan and Joel Coen are the directors.

Although there is no pre-registration for this free adult program the book is available for immediate pickup at the Manchester Branch Library so it can be read ahead of time. For further information call (732) 657-7600 or go online to www.theoceancountylibrary.org.

The Manchester Branch of the Ocean County Library is located at 21 Colonial Drive in Manchester Township
