This coming Saturday, May 13, the Wilton Library‘s “New Perspectives Film Series” will be screening Bright Lights, the documentary that has taken on a bittersweet, poignant turn since the movie’s subjects–Hollywood stars Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds–died last year.

The movie screens from 7:30-9:30 p.m..

The intimate portrait of Hollywood royalty in all its eccentricities, made all the poignant with their passing one day apart takes an up-close, intimate look at the relationship between Fisher and her mother, Reynolds, who live in the same Beverly Hills compound.

The 83-year old grand dame has a Las Vegas act, but performing is taking its toll. Carrie’s response is both hilarious and heart-rending. It features vintage family films and extensive vérité footage that bring iconic old-World Hollywood to life.

The documentary was directed by Alexis Bloom and Fisher Stevens and screened at the Cannes, Telluride, and New York Film Festivals in 2015.

The suggested donation to attend is $5. Refreshments will be served. The New Perspectives Documentary series is programmed and moderated by filmmaker Megan Smith-Harris. A Q&A will follow the film. Registration is highly recommended, and can be completed online or by calling 203.762.6334.

Wilton Library is located at 137 Old Ridgefield Rd..
