Friday Movie Matinee Discussion (Online) Online

Join us for a lively virtual discussion with Professor Tas Salini, Instructor of Film History and Film Appreciation at Broward College.

About the film

The movie for discussion is The Reader. It is the story of Michael Berg, a German lawyer who, as a teenager in the late 1950s, had an affair with an older woman, Hanna, who then disappeared only to resurface years later as one of the defendants in a war crimes trial stemming from her actions as a concentration camp guard late in the war.
