Virtual - Friday Night Film Discussion: "Out Stealing Horses" *For Adults

Friday, January 13, 2023

Welcome to our Friday Night Film Discussions! Today, we’ll be discussing “Out Stealing Horses" in which a man retires to solitary life in the Norwegian woods after the death of his wife, but the past resurfaces.

 The way it works:

PRIOR to the meeting (whenever works for your schedule), watch "Out Stealing Horses" 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.


This film follows Trond, a grieving widower to the remote woods of Norway to live out the rest of his years.  A chance encounter with his neighbor Lars, rekindles dormant memories, as Trond realizes that he knew Lars back in the summer of 1948.
