Cinema Society: Cast Away

Princeton Public Library

To fit in with our "Oceans of Possibilities" Summer Reading Program, this month we'll be talking about the 2000 Robert Zemeckis film, Cast Away. Starring Tom Hanks and Helen Hunt, Cast Away follows the story of Chuck, a FedEx executive (Hanks), who gets stranded on an island following a plane crash. Chuck battles the elements, loneliness, starvation, and thirst, and comes out the other side a different person. There will be a copy for checkout in the library's collection, and the film is also currently streaming on Amazon Prime with a subscription, and is for rent on multiple other platforms. The discussion will take place in the Large Meeting Room at 5 P.M.
