Come watch movies with us this fall!
Our 2010 Fall Film Study, sponsored by BPC Adult Education, features three interesting works that are sure to inspire conversation:
The Last Temptation of Christ (1988)
Sunday, September 12, at 6:30 p.m.
Nikos Kazantzakis’s landmark novel becomes director Martin Scorsese‘s moving, spiritual, and highly controversial film that challenges the Christian notion that Jesus was both human and divine. Cast includes Willem Dafoe, Harvey Keitel, Barbara Hershey, Harry Dean Stanton, and David Bowie.
O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000)
Sunday, October 3, at 7:30 p.m.
A masterpiece from directors Joel and Ethan Coen. Set in 1937 Depression-era, rural Mississippi, the movie is a satire loosely based on Homer’s Odyssey. The story is wonderful and the music (period-specific folk, primitive Baptist, traditional African-American gospel) is even better. Cast includes George Clooney, John Turturro, Tim Blake Nelson, John Goodman, Holly Hunter, and Charles Durning.
The Visitor (2008)
Sunday, November 7, at 7:30 p.m.
A lonely man’s life changes when he is forced to face issues relating to identity, immigration, and cross-cultural communication in post-9/11 New York City. Directed by Tom McCarthy, who also directed The Station Agent. Stars Richard Jenkins, in an Oscar-nominated role.
