Adapted from Judith Guest's 1976 novel, Ordinary People is an elegantly restrained drama about the Jarrett family, shattered by tragedy after an accident leaves their elder son dead and their surviving son crippled by grief. Mary Tyler Moore and Donald Sutherland starred as parents who once seemed to have it all, and Hutton, in his first major film role, broke America's collective heart as Conrad, the son left behind. Judd Hirsch costarred as the therapist who helps him, and a young Elizabeth McGovern played Conrad's love interest.
Judith Guest will introduce the film. She will be in town visiting her granddaughter, who is a local resident, and helping to promote the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention Colorado Chapter's Southwest Colorado Out of the Darkness Walk on Saturday, September 30th at 9:30 am (registration at 8:30 am).
Join the Wilkinson Public Library on Thursday, September 28th at 6:00 pm for a Talk with Judith Guest, author of Ordinary People.
