REEL Conversation, Film & Discussion Series: Strange But True
Each film is based on a true story, a very strange but true story!
This month's title is An Education starring Carey Mulligan and Peter Sarsgaard.
Here’s a film about a teenage girl in 1960s suburban London and how her life changes with the arrival of a playboy nearly twice her age.
Prior to the screening of the film, we’ll give a brief introduction and note some interesting talking points portrayed in the movie. Brooks Appelbaum, Ph.D. and Dennis Bell will moderate. Rated PG-13.
