Their possible paths include show business on one hand and organized crime on the other, embodied by the slightly menacing yet avuncular kingpin, Angelo &quot;Gyp&quot; DeCarlo (Christopher Walken), who runs the neighborhood and keeps an eye on them. The boys begin to nurture dreams of becoming musical stars, goals that seem far out of reach until they invite Francesco to perform with them in their band, then rename him Frankie Valli; his unique falsetto vocals captivate the girls in the audience, which provides a sign of things to come. The young hopefuls sign a contract at the Brill Building and begin doing backup vocals for record producer Bob Crewe (Mike Doyle), but experience frustration when Crewe drags his feet on recording them as a solo act. Later, the performers name themselves The Four Seasons after feeling inspired by an unusual source. They add songwriter-musician Bob Gaudio (Erich Bergen) and the equation is complete; Crewe hears Gaudio&#39;s composition &quot;Sherry,&quot; decides to double-track Valli&#39;s voice, and helps create a national sensation. Later, however, certain difficulties begin to take their toll on the band - including financial problems, inner rivalries and tensions between the bandmates, and Valli&#39;s long periods on the road away from his wife and daughters. </div> </div> It's a wonderful Life (1947) (Hudson Park Library) http://www.nypl.org/node/280540 <div class="vevent"> <p><span class="location">Hudson Park Library</span> <br /><abbr class="dtstart" title="2014-12-18T14:00:00-05:00">Thursday, December 18 - 2:00 pm</abbr></p><div class="summary"><p class="FreeofChargeAltc">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;This is the all-time Frank Capra Holiday classic.&nbsp; George Baily who is a hardworking, honest man never gets any breaks.&nbsp; This almost reduces him to fatal despair. &nbsp;This is a timeless look&nbsp; at old&nbsp; America in&nbsp; the&nbsp; Holiday&nbsp; season&nbsp; and it&nbsp; never loses&nbsp; its&nbsp; charm year&nbsp; after&nbsp; year. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;<o:p></o:p></p> </div> </div> Muhlenberg Thursday Film Matinee - Love Actually (Muhlenberg Library) http://www.nypl.org/node/281240 <div class="vevent"> <p><span class="location">Muhlenberg Library, Community Room</span> <br /><abbr class="dtstart" title="2014-12-18T14:00:00-05:00">Thursday, December 18 - 2:00 pm</abbr></p><div class="summary"><p>All of London is in love -- or longing to be -- in Four Weddings and a Funeral writer Richard Curtis&#39; first directorial effort. Billed as &quot;the ultimate romantic comedy,&quot; Love Actually involves more than a dozen main characters, each weaving his or her way into another&#39;s heart over the course of one particularly eventful Christmas. The seemingly perfect wedding of Juliet (Keira Knightley) and Peter (Chiwetel Ejiofor) brings many of the principals together, including heartsick best man Mark (Andrew Lincoln), who harbors a very unrequited crush on Juliet. There&#39;s also recent widower Daniel (Liam Neeson), trying to help his lonely stepson Sam (Thomas Sangster) express his true feelings to a classmate. Across town, devoted working mother Karen (Emma Thompson) tries to rekindle the passion of her husband, Harry (Alan Rickman), who secretly pines for a young colleague of his. In the same office, the lonely Sarah (Laura Linney) not-so-secretly pines for a man just a few desks away (Rodrigo Santoro), who returns her affections but may not be able to dissuade her neuroses. Providing the unofficial soundtrack for all of the couples is an aging rocker (Bill Nighy) who just wants to cash in and get laid -- but even he might find a meaningful relationship in the most unlikely of places. A working print of Love Actually premiered at the 2003 Toronto International Film Festival. Cast: Bill Nighy, Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson, Emma Thompson, Alan Rickman, Colin Firth.
