Closely Watched Trains

One of Time's All-Time 100 Movies, Closely Watched Trains is a coming-of-age story set in German-occupied Czechoslovakia during WWII. Teenage Milos, a dispatch apprentice at a village train station, is unaware of the country's increasingly tense political situation. He's more concerned with his own sexual awakening. As he tentatively makes his way toward manhood, the country moves toward chaos, two situations which mirror each other in importance and complexity. 8:30 p.m. Domy Books, 1709 Westheimer.
