Tuesday, Nov 7, 2017 2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

In November, view independent films chosen by Westport Library’s Executive Director Bill Harmer. These are iconic films or filmmakers that inspired the new independent film wave.

In Henry Fool, socially inept garbage man Simon (James Urbaniak)  is befriended by Henry Fool (Thomas Jay Ryan), a witty roguish, but talentless novelist. Henry opens a magical world of literature to Simon who turns his hand to writing the 'great American poem.' As Simon begins his controversial ascent to the dizzying heights of Nobel Prize-winning poet, Henry sinks to a life of drinking in low-life bars. The two friends fall out and lose touch until Henry's criminal past catches up with him and he needs Simon's help to flee the country. (1997; 2h 17m)
