Hosted by Peter Mermin, this 1983 comedy-drama focuses on seven former college friends who gather for a weekend reunion following the funeral of a friend, Alex, who committed suicide. Each must confront the personal truths, sacrifices and betrayals that have left them disenchanted, as well as deal with unresolved issues they have with Alex, and with one another. Discussion will focus on the hero archetype and its relationship to social and political forces, and the relevance of the film to our current social and political situation.
