Movie Info

A branch library becomes the battlefield for a fierce war of wills in this dark comedy by writer-director Tamar Halpern. A head librarian quietly loathes the new book shelver, a feisty woman fresh out of rehab. But what begins as simmering passive aggression soon spirals into all-out war. Betsy Brandt and Elisa Bocanegra star in this sharp exploration of petty office politics, which won Best Feature at the Dances with Films festival in 2005.
