About the Event

Two terminally ill men (Morgan Freeman, Jack Nicholson) escape from a cancer ward and head off on a road trip with a wish list of to-do's before they die. Directed by Rob Reiner (When Harry Met Sally, This Is Spinal Tap, Stand By Me, The Princess Bride).

About the film series: While death is often a taboo topic of conversation, it is inevitable for all of us. A series of award-winning films dealing with end-of-life issues will be shown at Pack Memorial Library on Fridays through December 8 from 2 - 5 p.m. The program is designed to help people better understand and become more comfortable talking about — and perhaps shifting their perspective on end-of-life experiences.

Each film will be followed by in-depth, thought-provoking, and death-positive discussions moderated by Gail Harris, National Emmy Award-winning journalist for PBS and NPR and former correspondent for ABC News Nightline and World News Tonight. These six exceptional films by new and established filmmakers, animators, and actors about death and dying are entertaining and inspiring. Potential discussion topics will include legacy, the spiritual side of death, alternative ways to die, preparedness, facing fear, and finding courage.
