Emilio Estevez directed, wrote and stars in The Public. This film tells the story of a group of patrons experiencing houselessness who take refuge at their local library during an extreme cold front. With local emergency shelters at full capacity, these patrons stage a nonviolent sit-in at the library in order to stay within the building after closing time — leading to tense negotiations with local police and sensational coverage by local media, with the library’s staff caught in the middle.

Movie playing at Hollywood Theatre, 4122 NE Sandy Blvd, Portland, OR 97212
