Sylvan Lake Film Society is back for its second film of the season with a showing of Trishna, an adaptation of Tess of the D’Urbervilles.

“Set in contemporary Rajasthan, Trishna meets a wealthy young British businessman Jay Singh who has come to India to work in his father’s hotel business. After an accident destroys her father’s jeep, Trishna goes to work for Jay, and they fall in love. But despite their feelings for each other, they cannot escape the conflicting pressures of a rural society which is changing rapidly through industrialization, urbanization, and, above all, education,” IMDB states.

Trishna will be showing for one night only, Monday, Oct. 29th. Tickets are available for pre-sale at the library, or may be purchased at the theatre that night. Tickets are $8, season passes are $32 — you get one movie free! The movie starts at 7 p.m..

Sylvan Lake Municipal Library and Landmark Cinemas collaborate to bring you the best in independent films; films that don’t normally make it to the big theatres. The film society is a not-for-profit organization, run by dedicated volunteers with big hearts, and a love of movies. The society shows its movies the last Monday of every month.
