Place & Time: The American Dream in Film  

In defining the American dream, James Truslow Adams wrote that "life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement" regardless of social class or circumstances of birth. We will examine this premise in the following films: The Grapes of Wrath (1940), The Best Years of Our Lives (1946), Avalon (1990), A Raisin in the Sun, and more. We will meet online via Zoom for an introduction of the film, then you rent and watch the film independently via the streaming service of your choice. After the film, rejoin us for a lively discussion of each film. Additional film rental fees are not included; approximately $25 for all six films.
