Film Club presents “The Full Monty”
The film club presents a film in English once a month on a Saturday afternoon. This showing will be of “The Full Monty”. The Full Monty is a 1997 British comedy film directed by Peter Cattaneo. The film is set in Sheffield, England and tells the story of six unemployed men, four of them former steel workers, who decide to form a male striptease act (à la Chippendale dancers) in order to gather enough money to get somewhere else and for the main character, Gaz, to be able to see his son. Gaz declares that their show will be better than the Chippendales dancers because they will go “the full monty”—strip all the way—hence the film’s title. Despite being a comedy, the film also touches on serious subjects such as unemployment, fathers’ rights, depression, impotence, homosexuality, body image, working class culture and suicide.

Screening begins at 3 o’clock sharp and will be followed by a discussion in English. This activity is free and open to all library members. If possible, please reserve by signing up at the front desk.
