Movies with an Unexpected Ending

4 Sessions
Wednesdays, March 1, 8, 15 & 22
1:00 - 4:00 p.m.
BRCC, Room 122, Continuing Education Building
Member Fee: $50, Non-Member Fee:  $70

We will watch and discuss four films with provocative, surprise plot twists. These will be well-made movies, with no corny endings or gaping plot holes. Don’t worry if you’ve seen one or two of the films before; you can look for clues you didn’t see the first time. Films include The Sixth Sense and The Usual Suspects – and several other surprises. We will also cover the movie industry in general (e.g. what do all the titles in the credits mean?) and answer questions about the particular films we are watching (e.g. backgrounds of actors, director and writer; where the movie was shot). Finally, we will discuss the film itself – did you think it was a good plot twist? Did it make you rethink the entire movie? And more!
