Milton Public Library to put on “Tuesday Night at the Movies”
Our “Tuesday Night at the Movies” pick is a wonderful documentary called “A Small Good Thing” produced by filmmaker Pamela Tanner Boll, which will be shown on August 15th starting at 6:30 p.m. The surprising discovery at the heart of “A Small Good Thing” is that hard – but not impossible – is a crucial part of a good life. The stories in this film will inspire us to make small, good changes in our daily lives. It examines how our ideal of the American Dream has come to the end of its promise. It tells the story of people moving away from a philosophy of “more is better” toward a more holistic conception of happiness – one based on a close connection to their bodies and health, to the natural world, and to the greater good. This is a feature-length documentary set in western Massachusetts in the Berkshires – the perfect setting for a story about renewing personal and universal bonds. It explores how by working in small but meaningful ways, we can overcome obstacles to happiness – the isolation of suburban comfort as well as the despair of poverty – to create joy for ourselves and others. This film won “Best Documentary” at the 2015 Boston International Film Festival, is not rated and the running time is 72 minutes. Please join us.
