Reel Life: Parent/Teen Relationships Through Six Decades of Film

Posted by Aaron on


How well do movies portray the sometimes complicated relationships between parents and teenagers?

Join Kevin Mettinger, MFA, for an opportunity to watch and discuss this topic at the Fauquier County Public Library’s summer film festival, Reel Life: Parent/Teen Relationships Through Six Decades of Film, beginning Friday, June 19.   Showtime is 7 p.m. (doors open at 6:30 p.m.) at the Warrenton central library.

Bring your own chair (BYOC); we will have the popcorn hot and ready for you to enjoy!
