Gattaca – Film – Sunday, Feb. 7th

January 28, 2010

Again, Gattaca, the 3rd film in the sophomore film series, will be shown

at the Darien Library at 2 p.m. in the community room.

This is the simplest way to see this film so you don’t have to go scrounging around for a rental.

You must see this film by Feb. 8th for my class.
