Monday Movie Matinee: Something The Lord Made 

February 12 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

Two men–one a wealthy white chief surgeon, the other a poor black lab technician–achieve a monumental medical breakthrough that earned one accolade…and the other a painful lesson in racism and unequal opportunity. Working in 1940s Baltimore on an unprecedented technique for performing heart surgery on “blue babies,” Dr. Alfred Blalock (Alan Rickman – Love Actually) and lab tech Vivien Thomas (rapper Mos Def – Monster’s Ball) form an impressive team. But even as the two invent a new field of medicine–saving thousands of lives in the process–social pressures threaten to undermine their collaboration and tear their friendship apart in the historical drama Something The Lord Made. NR 1hr 57m
