Movies set trends, influence political movements, initiate focus on lifestyles and thought, are a custodian of imagination and continue to be technologically innovative. The film industry accomplishes this by recognizing and accepting responsibility to channel dreams and expectations, by masterful storytelling and offering surprises, pathos, memorable drama and comedy. Our continuing exhibition of outstanding films will again feature contrasting performances by accomplished actors from both past and present. For each of our chosen performers, we will present three or four films in which the contrasting roles they played will illustrate the full range of their talents. Featured for this fall semester will be Grace Kelly, Cary Grant, Meryl Streep and Denzel Washington. We invite you to join us Tuesday afternoons to see and discuss memorable films and performances.
