The City of Parkland invites residents to an afternoon of film and discussion for the critically acclaimed movie Rudy.
A true story, Rudy is about Rudy Ruettiger, a steel mill worker hoping to play football for the University of Notre Dame. He faces challenges, including dyslexia and loss, during his journey to the Indiana-based Catholic University.
Released in 1993, Rudy was the first film Notre Dame allowed to be shot on campus since Knute Rockne, All American in 1940.
In 2005, Rudy was named one of the best 25 sports movies of the previous 25 years in two polls by ESPN (#24 by a panel of sports experts and #4 by ESPN.com users). It was ranked the 54th-most inspiring film of all time by the American Film Institute.
Held on Saturday, November 19, the film begins at 2:00 p.m for teens and adults. Admission is free, and the film is rated PG.
Guests are encouraged to use their Parkland Library card to register here, www.cityofparkland.org.
