Virtual - Friday Night Film Discussion: "Truman" *For Adults

Friday, June 24, 2022

Welcome to our Friday Night Film Discussions! Today, we’ll be discussing “Truman” in which a man diagnosed with terminal cancer sets out with his friend to finalize funeral arrangements, settle his accounts and, most importantly, find a home for his beloved dog, Truman.


The way it works:

PRIOR to the meeting (whenever works for your schedule), watch "Truman" on Kanopy - one of the library's video streaming service - and then come to the meeting prepared to discuss!

You will need an Ashland library card or a Boston Public Library e-card to use Kanopy. Click here to access Kanopy or for more info on the BPL e-card (see if you are eligible and then register - you can use any of BPL's online resources with this card!).

Please register to receive the program link - which will be in your confirmation and reminder emails (check your spam folder for them!). Contact with any questions.


In this heartfelt and surprisingly humorous film,  terminally ill actor Julián wants to spend his final days tying up loose ends. When childhood friend Tomás pays him an unexpected visit, the two men set out to finalize funeral arrangements, settle accounts and find a home for Julián's beloved dog, Truman.
