Welcome to finals week! We know it might be a rough time of year, so best of luck.
We’re kicking off this hellacious week with a little present: advance passes to see The Danish Girl on Thursday, December 10th at 7pm in Friendship Heights. The story of transgender woman Lili Elbe is fascinating and timely, and Eddie Redmayne’s performance has garnered major attention (and some controversy). No one has won back-to-back acting awards since Tom Hanks for Philadelphia and Forrest Gump; could Redmayne be next?
You can see for yourself weeks before the film expands to a larger national release – what better study break? You can pick up passes in person at Media Services or online. Remember to show up early: passes don’t guarantee admission, and these screenings typically fill up early.
Hopefully you can make time this week to head to the movies. If not, we hope to at least see you at the library’s Final Perk event on Wednesday!
