Get eyeful of 'Calendar Girls' free at East Hernando Branch Library

See 'Calendar Girls' for free at library

A free showing of the 2003 film Calendar Girls will be at 2 p.m. Tuesday at the East Hernando Branch Library, 6457 Windmere Road.

The film, which stars Helen Mirren and Julie Walters, is the true story of a group of middle-aged women in North Yorkshire who put out a yearly calendar as a fundraiser for their cancer charity. When one of the women, Annie Clarke, loses her husband to leukemia, the women decide to pose "nearly" nude for the next calendar, hoping to sell a few hundred extra copies. Instead, the calendar becomes a worldwide phenomenon and outsells calendars put out by famous and much younger women.

The movie is rated PG-13. There is no cost to attend and light refreshments will be provided. For information, call (352) 754-4443.
