Movie: “The Founder” Wednesday, October 18, at 7 pm

The Flemington Free Public Library will present The Founder (PG – 13, 115 minutes) on Wednesday, October 18, at 7 pm. Free admission.

“I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t thought about The Founder constantly since seeing it… It’s an ad that becomes a warning before circling around and becoming another, darker kind of advertisement, and one of the most intriguing and surprising things about The Founder is that, in the end, it seems vaguely ashamed of itself for letting this happen”

— Matt Zoller Seitz
