Join us for the 2010 Fall Alumni Film Series named "Global Justice" happening 7 p.m. on Wednesdays, Sept. 22-Nov. 10. Our second film is the Oscar-nominated courtroom drama, The Verdict. Paul Newman stars as Frank Galvin, a down on his luck, alcoholic lawyer who takes on a difficult malpractice case with the hopes that it will end with a quick settlement.  After visiting the victim, left in a coma after an operation, Galvin becomes emotionally involved and ends up in trial, working the case of his life.

Global Justice participants will see eight films selected by Star Tribune critic Colin Covert '74 that take an international look at how films depict justice in various cultures, environments, and political frameworks.  The films for the series include: The Bicycle Thief (9/22), The Verdict (9/29), Incident at Oglala (10/6), The Castle (10/13), In the Name of the Father (10/20), Midnight Express (10/27), Crimes and Misdemeanors (11/3), The Postman Always Rings Twice (11/10).

The registration fee for the film series is $40 per person for the entire series or $5 per person for each film.  Register online here
