The Public (PG-13) 120 minutes

THE PUBLIC– MOVIE (PG-13) A film by Emilio Estevez. Downtown Cincinnati is suffering an unusual Arctic blast that has made its way to the Public Library doors. At odds with library officials over how to handle the extreme weather event, some homeless patrons turn the building into a shelter for the night by staging an "Occupy" sit in. What begins as an act of civil disobedience becomes a stand-off with police and a rush-to-judgment media constantly speculating about what's happening. This David-versus-Goliath story tackles some of our nation's most challenging issues, homelessness, and mental illness and sets the drama inside one of the last bastions of democracy-in-action: your public library.
