The Great Gilly Hopkins


Friday Flicks
Looking for something to do on a Friday morning? The Lincoln Public Library is showing The Great Gilly Hopkins on February 3rd at 10:00 AM on the big screen in the Program Room.

A smart-mouthed 12-year-old girl (Sophie Nelisse) bounces around from one foster home to the next, causing trouble at each stop with her unruly behavior. A kindhearted woman (Kathy Bates) eventually takes her in and breaks through the child's rough exterior, becoming the mother she's never had in this emotional comedy-drama from director Stephen Herek. Glenn Close, Octavia L. Spencer, and Julia Stiles co-star. (99 min., PG)
