Art in the Form of Film: Mighty Aphrodite (1995)

March 26, 5:45 pm - 9:00 pm

Date: Friday, March 26, 5:45-9pm

Fee: $7, includes a glass of wine or bottle of water.

Mighty Aphrodite is one of director Woody Allen’s quirkier films as it periodically makes use of a sort of modern-day Greek chorus, whose function in classical Greek theater was to offer insight regarding a character’s motive. In this case, the character in need of advice is a married man (Allen) who discovers that the biological mother of his adopted gifted son is a prostitute. That role is played to comedic perfection by Mira Sorvino who deservedly won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. If you need a good laugh, and who doesn’t these days, don’t miss Mighty Aphrodite. Instructor Paul Marino will introduce the film, raise questions to ponder and host a post-viewing discussion.
