Three Good Movies
with Mark Lundsten
We will watch Three Good Movies in weeks #1, #3, and #5; High Noon, a 1952 western; Tootsie, a 1982 comedy; and The King’s Speech, a 2010 drama. In weeks #2, #4, and #6, we’ll discuss the movies and study them by re-watching some of the scenes. All three films include seasoned actors, directors, writers, and crew, all won Oscars, and all were box office successes. In six weeks, we will learn not only how three good movies are very distinct, but also how they are very similar.Please note: the sessions for weeks #3 and #5 will end between 5:30 and 6:00 pm in order to watch all of the two longer movies. All the other sessions will end at 5:30 pm.
