Expand your ability to understand and enjoy films by sharpening your skills in analyzing characters, plot, and acting.
Soul-fueling films have been produced in all genres and eras of movie-making, but many of the best are not widely recognized as such.
Guided by literature expert and philosopher Dr. Andrew Bernstein, you’ll discuss and analyze four excellent, yet very different films:
- Notorious (1946), a suspense thriller
- Inherit the Wind (1960), a philosophic courtroom conflict
- How the West Was Won (1962), a Western epic
- A Most Violent Year (2014), a story about a morally upright man’s struggle to succeed in a corrupt industry.
Come immerse yourself in superb cinematic art; discuss the characters, plot, theme, acting, and dialogue with other active-minded participants; deepen your understanding and enjoyment of these four films; and get more out of films forever after.
