A child’s accusation has life-shattering consequences in this Oscar-nominated 1961 adaptation of Lillian Hellman’s celebrated play from legendary director William Wyler. Starring Academy Award winners Audrey Hepburn and Shirley MacLaine and co-starring James Garner, this landmark film is “one of the most finely wrought dramas in the history of the screen” (Motion Picture Herald).

Karen (Hepburn) and Martha (MacLaine) are the headmistresses of an exclusive school for girls. When they discipline a malicious little girl, the vindictive child twists an overheard comment into slander and accuses her teachers of “questionable” behavior. Soon the gossip engulfs the school’s community, with repercussions that are swift, crushing and tragic.

December: The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert

Thursday, December 2 at 6:30pm, UHP Club Room

Priscilla

Three friends, three lives, one persuasion and a pink bus named Priscilla head into the Australian desert with their colourful, extravagant show in a road movie that brings culture clash to the forefront of a comedy of errors. A mixture of vast landscapes, narrow minds and a melancholy, reflective mood that with the help of a larger than life gal that is Priscilla she more than widens the comfort zones and finds not just new horizons but also finds that is lost.
