"The Sum of Us"

Film for Mature Audiences

After you've honored your father on Father's Day this Sunday, come to the library on Monday to see a beautiful story of a father and son relationship unlike any you may have seen on film before:  The Sum of Us.

The Sum of Us is a 1994 Australian import starring two of Australia's biggest stars, Russell Crowe and Jack Thompson.  Thompson plays the father of a gay son who is looking for a mate.  This film was the most popular film in Australia the year it came out, and it won many film awards there.  It's a comedy, but it has many poignant moments, and it is rated R.   A discussion will follow the film, which runs one hour and 40 minutes.
