In commemoration of the 75th Anniversary of D-Day, Bower Center for the Arts and the Bedford Public Library System have paired up to present a 4-part film series based on wars from WWII to Afghanistan. We kick off the series with the Oscar-winning film Saving Private Ryan starring Tom Hanks, Edward Burns, Matt Damon, and Tom Sizemore. Captain John Miller (Tom Hanks) takes his men behind enemy lines to find Private James Ryan (Matt Damon), whose three brothers have been killed in combat. Surrounded by the brutal realties of war, while searching for Ryan, each man embarks upon a personal journey and discovers their own strength to triumph over an uncertain future with honor, decency and courage. A discussion immediately follows the film.
