Calling all Anglophile alumni: Get “Dangerous”
The UW-Parkside Alumni Association invites graduates to an evening in England...and you won't even have to leave Kenosha! Alumni are welcome to gather Saturday, Nov. 17, between showings of the foreign film "A Dangerous Method," for a thoroughly Anglo evening complete with tea, billiards, and darts.
The first showing of the film begins at 5 p.m. with the reception beginning at 6:30 p.m. and continuing until the 8 p.m. show. The evening features an exuberant presentation on all things English including teas, ales, appetizers, and sweets all with a cockney twist. Even the film, starring Keira Knightley, Viggo Mortensen, and Michael Fassbender, is in English.
On the eve of World War I, Zurich and Vienna are the setting for a dark tale of discovery. "A Dangerous Method" explores the turbulent relationships between fledgling psychiatrist Carl Jung (Fassbender), his mentor Sigmund Freud (Mortensen), and Knightley's Sabina Spielrein, the beautiful but disturbed young woman who comes between them. Sensuality, ambition, and deceit set the scene for the pivotal moment when Jung, Freud, and Sabina come together and split apart, forever changing the face of modern thought.
Cost of the reception is $10 in advance, $15 at the door. For those who wish to see the film, a limited number of free passes are available for the 8 p.m. showing. The reception takes place in the pub-like setting of The Den in the UW-Parkside Student Center.To reserve your reception tickets, call Peppy O'Neill at 262-595-2233 or access firstname.lastname@example.org.
