'I heard about the trials and tribulations' in Enfield after the decision to cancel the earlier showing of 'Sicko,' said Graham, an advocate for universal health care. 'I wanted to make sure that the movie was shown.'

He thanked the library for showing the movie and for 'taking the heat.'

Since the decision to cancel the first showing of 'Sicko,' the library has addressed complaints by adding movies to its Friday Films series that offer different points of view on health care, education, religion and the environment."
