Biloxi Blues is a movie based on Neil Simon's play of the same name, a semi-autobiographical story of Army boot camp recruits during World War II.
The play is part two of Neil Simon's Eugene Trilogy, which also includes Brighton Beach Memoirs and Broadway Bound. The role of Eugene was played by Matthew Broderick on Broadway, and Broderick also stars in the movie version, which was directed by Mike Nichols.
Eugene learns to cope with soldiers from all walks of life, falls in love and loses his virginity while having to navigate the eccentricities of his drill sergeant (played by Christopher Walken).
The movie runs 106 minutes and is rated PG-13. Join us for the free showing on Monday, September 19, at 2 p.m., in the library's meeting room.
