Emilio Estevez may be best known for his role in classic teen films like “The Breakfast Club”, but his new work has a more literary and socially conscious ambition: “The Public” – which he wrote, directed, and starred in – is a story of social activism and civil disobedience, set in Cincinnati, Ohio, and it centers on an uprising staged by the city’s homeless inside the public library.
