The Francis A. Gregory Library is starting a Foreign Film Night. The first film, showing on on Wednesday, Nov. 7 at 6:30 p.m., is Kolya, the Academy Award-winner for Best Foreign Language film in 1996.
The story is about Louka, a down-on-his-luck concert musician, who agrees to a bogus marriage with a Russian woman for money. When she takes off for Germany, leaving her 5-year-old son behind with Louka, it is up to him to look after the boy. The frightened boy speaks only Czech, but the pair learns to communicate with and finally love each other.
This film is rated PG-13.
