The Public

PG-13, 122 minutes / Cast: Alec Baldwin, Emilio Estevez, Jena Malone

No ratings yet.

Emilio Estevez's arresting drama "The Public" enters the Cincinnati public library on the night of a bitter winter storm, incisively exploring issues of homelessness, mental health and community.

Downtown librarians Stuart and Myra (Estevez and Jena Malone) see their regular winter day shaken up when homeless patrons decide to take shelter in their library for the night. It starts as a peaceful sit-in, but quickly escalates into a stand-off with police, heightened as the local and national media speculate breathlessly on what's really happening. This David-and-Goliath story tackles some of our nation's most challenging issues, all set inside one of the last bastions of democracy-in-action: the public library.
