The Downtown Library put up this display of movies that are inspired by real life.
We have documentaries like 49 Up which follows the lives of 14 children every 7 years to see their progression in life, This Is It, shows Michael Jackson preparing for his final concert, and The Invisible War investigates the epidemic of rape within the U.S. military.
Many movies are based on actual events, like Donnie Brasco, where Johnny Depp plays the FBI agent, Joe Pistone, who infiltrated the mafia of New York. Heavenly Creatures tells the true story of two teenage girls who became so close that they would do anything to keep from being separated by their parents. The Great Escape tells the story of World War II British and American flyers who attempted to escape from a maximum-security German prison camp.
Come to all three campus libraries and check out these movies and many many more.
