    GSAS Master's College November Cinema Club
    For November's Cinema Club outing, we are heading to the odd and original Birdman. Join us for a fun night of innovative cinema.

    Birdman tells the story of washed up movie star Riggan Thomas (Michael Keaton) and his attempts to reinvent himself as a theater director and dramatic actor with a Broadway adaptation of Raymond Carver's "What We Talk About When We Talk About Love." Riggan struggles with his daughter, his cast, the media and the critics as opening night approaches; and he can't seem to silence the voice of Birdman, the iconic superhero he once played on the silver screen.

    Monday, November 24 at 7:15 pm
    RSVP for Details.
