Join us on Thursday, September 3rd for a screening of Affliction, written and directed by Paul Schrader, with Oscar winning and nominated performances by James Colburn and Nick Nolte. The screening will be followed by a Q & A with Mr. Schrader and a reception featuring appetizers, local craft beer and wine (cash bar) to follow.
In a small New Hampshire town, washed-up cop Wade Whitehouse (Nick Nolte) has a troubled past, an abusive father, the contempt of his ex-wife and an unimpressive streak as a lawman. When hunting guide Jack Hewitt reports a businessman's accidental death during a hunting trip, Wade believes he has a chance to turn around his life, if he can prove it was murder. Increasingly obsessed, Wade begins to lose his composure during the investigation.
