Movies and Human Frailties

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic The films for this study group will concentrate on persons who experience behavioral disorders or mental, physical, or emotional disabilities. Most importantly, the films will depict the heroic roles of the physicians, psychotherapists, and caregivers dedicated to the recovery of their patients and long-term assistance to them in gaining or regaining normal and productive lives. Many of these films are based on true stories of patients and providers. But, not every film will have a happy ending. The science of mental and behavioral health treatment continues to evolve. Among the movies that will be shown in the classroom and discussed are: The Lost Weekend, The Man With The Golden Arm, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, Rain Man, The King's Speech, A Beautiful Mind, and several other highly acclaimed and compelling human dramas. Join us for this cinematic study in which we will discuss the issues raised in each film as well as its production values.
