Join Kevin Carson, a Watertown resident with an MFA in Filmmaking and Film Studies, for a discussion of No Country for Old Men. This remarkable film is based on a novel by Cormac McCarthy, directed by The Coen Brothers, stars Tommy Lee Jones, Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin, and Woody Harrelson, and won 4 Academy Awards.
When a man stumbles on a bloody crime scene, a pickup truck loaded with heroin, and two million dollars in irresistible cash, his decision to take the money sets off an unstoppable chain reaction of violence.
No Country for Old Men is available for Watertown residents to stream for free on Hoopla. Watch the movie at home, then join Kevin for a guided conversation about the film. We can't hold Movie Mondays right now, but we can all still enjoy films together!
