Conversations on Aging/Film

ID : 725   
« back to classes page
This study group is conceived as a continuation of the conversation begun this summer when we read, Aging Thoughtfully: Conversations about Retirement, Romance, Wrinkles and Regret, by Martha Nussbaum and Saul Levmore. Themes we will explore are reinvention, love and loss, and friendship. We have picked a wide variety of films, both old favorites such as About Schmidt, starring Jack Nicolson, and Harry and Tonto with Art Carney; as well as lesser known classics like Toyko Story by the acclaimed director, Yasujiro Ozu. Other films we have selected are Amour, winner of the 2013 Academy Award for Best Foreign film; Beginners, a late in life coming out story with Christopher Plummer; The Visitor, a touching story of emotional reawakening; and eight other fabulous films. We will watch one film each week in class, followed by a discussion. Depending on the length of the film, the class may last a half hour longer. Neither reading the book nor participating in the summer session is a prerequisite for the class.
