Off the Beaten Path: Films of the New Millennium

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic In this study group, we will watch and discuss a selection of films from our new millennium that casual movie viewers may not have seen. Some are foreign films, while others are independent efforts that may not have had wide distribution. All of these films share a deep investigation of human emotion and motivation, reveal fully developed characters, and present engaging plots that capture viewers' attention. These are perfect movies for film lovers who enjoy viewing and discussing complex and entertaining fare. We will discuss all aspects of the films including, but not limited to, character development, cinematography, music, and symbolism. We will view the films in the classroom followed by a discussion facilitated by study group participant volunteers. The sessions will be three hours in length to afford us sufficient time. Some foreign-focused films include Babel and Y Tu Mama Tambien by Mexican directors. Others are The Cooler, Rabbit Proof Fence, and the Swimming Pool by the well-known French director, Francois Ozon. Join us to discover these overlooked gems.
