Tattered Cover Film Series: Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence

May 1, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join the Tattered Cover Book Store, UCD’s College of Arts & Media, KUNC 91.5, and the Sie FilmCenter (in the Lowenstein CulturePlex, next door to the Tattered Cover Colfax Avenue) for an exploration of the world of classic movies, hosted by film critic Howie Movshovitz. All programs begin at 1:00 pm. Tickets are $1.00, and are available one hour before the screening from the box office. Parking is available in the parking lot off of Elizabeth or Columbine Streets.

About the Film: Not a film for celebrating the Christmas holidays, Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence takes place during World War II in a Japanese prison camp for allied soldiers. It centers on the obsessive hatred/friendship/attraction between the Japanese commander (Ryuichi Sakamoto) and a British officer (David Bowie). It’s a more brutal and disturbing movie than The Bridge on the River Kwai, which seems tame by comparison. (123 minutes)
