Olympia Dukakis and Brenda Fricker play a lesbian couple in ‘Cloudburst.’

The LGBT Older Adults Task Force of Howard County and the 50+ Bain Center are co-sponsoring the film “Cloudburst” on May 12. The event takes place at the Bain Center, 5470 Ruth Keaton Way in Columbia from 6-8:30 p.m. with doors opening at 5:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served.

“Cloudburst” is a 2011 Canadian-American adventure comedy-drama film by American-Canadian writer and director Thom Fitzgerald. It stars Olympia Dukakis and Brenda Fricker as a lesbian couple who travel from Maine to Nova Scotia to get married after one is moved into a nursing home. Along the way, they encounter a young hitchhiker travelling home to Nova Scotia to visit his dying mother, and the three bond as they travel.

A discussion will follow the presentation covering such topics as family dynamics, aging, loss and love. This program qualifies for 2.5 Category I continuing education units in Social Work.

Admission is free but reservations are required by May 9 by calling the Bain Center at 410-313-7213. For more information about the LGBT Older Adults Task Force of Howard County, email
