Art in the Form of Film: Adaptation (2002)
August 19, 5:45 pm - 9:00 pm
Date: Friday, August 19, 5:45-9pm
This film features Nicolas Cage, who always adds some crazy to his characters, and Meryl Streep, who rarely does but more than makes up for that in this rollicking roller-coaster ride of a story within a story. It would take more than the words allotted here to describe the narrative but suffice to say the plot involves the hunt for a rare orchid with aphrodisiac qualities, and a tormented writer. It all adds up to the one of the most original films ever. Instructor Paul Marino will introduce the film, raise questions to ponder and host a post-viewing discussion. Sponsor: Chases on the Beach, Where it’s Always Sunny.
Fee: $7 includes glass of wine or bottle of water.
