On Sat. March 21 at 4 and 7 p.m., the Old Village Talking House presents an inspiring film, A Man Named Pearl. This film follows Pearl Fryar, a self-taught South Carolinian topiary artist who became nationally known with a fanatic slip of the tongue when truly only wanting to win Bishopville’s Yard of the Month award.

Although he had been featured in many magazines and newspapers for his artistic lawn, this award was the one he wanted to win. Visitors all across South Carolina came to visit his three-and-a-half acre lawn spiritually inspired by love. Fryar flawlessly inscribed love, peace, and goodwill into beautiful flowers on his lawn and he lives his life by these words and has been for the past 30 years.

With ticket prices ranging from $2 to $5 and free popcorn everyone has the chance to see this encouraging film. —Emma Hart
