The film is an emotionally surprising and revealing portrait of one the most hilarious and long-standing career women ever in the business. Ricki Stern/Anne Sundberg. 2010. 84 m. NR. US. IFC Films.

Sunday, September 21 from 12noon - 5pm

There's truly fun for everyone at the Ardsley Day festival. You can jam to live music while sampling A Taste of Ardsley's free food and drinks by neighborhood restaurants. Kick off your holiday shopping by supporting local merchants and vendors. Teens can climb a rock wall, bungee or groove to live music by local bands. Younger kids can play on inflatable obstacle courses, drive go-­‐karts or glide down giant slides, while the littlest ones will enjoy face painting, a balloon artist, creating a fun fall craft or S'mores made by the local Boy Scout troop. You don't have to be from Ardsley to compete in Ardsley's Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie Challenge (for ages 6 to 12) and the new Ardsley Chilipalooza (for ages 13 to 113).
