Cinema Club Presents: The Reader

Tuesday, May 5th at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room

What is the nature of guilt--and how can the human spirit survive when confronted with deep and horrifying truths? The Reader, a hushed and haunting meditation on these knotty questions, is sorrowful and shocking, yet leavened by a deep love story that is its heart. In postwar Germany, young schoolboy Michael meets and begins a tender romance with the older, mysterious Hanna. Years later, the two cross paths again, and Michael learns, slowly, horrifyingly, of acts that Hanna may have been involved in during the war. There is a war crimes trial, and the accused at one point asks the panel of prosecutors: "Well, what would you have done?" It is that question--as one German professor says later: "How can the next generation of Germans come to terms with the Holocaust?"--that is both heartbreaking and unanswerable.

Discussion to follow movie. Refreshments will be served. Rated: R
