In this comedy from 1992, two teenagers from New York are accused of murder in rural Alabama while on their way back to college. Unable to afford a good attorney, they call the cousin of one of the boys — an inexperienced, loud-mouthed lawyer — who comes to defend them.
• Chess Club: 2-4 p.m. Nov. 10. All ages and skill levels are welcome to come play (or learn how to play) the game of chess. This event will be held in the Community Room.
