Course DescriptionThe subject of betrayal has been a hotbed resource for movies, its violent emotions, dramatic disruptions, and lustful sexuality an irresistible lure, both for filmmakers and audiences alike. We examine the psychological and sociological terrain of adultery in six sensational films that shed light on its hot-fudge-sundae allure as well as its often calamitous ending: Falling in Love, Fatal Attraction, Damage, Unfaithful, Little Children, and Notes on a Scandal.
Course OutlineWhat can movies tell us about adultery in marriage? This course explores why it happens, and what are the consequences of looking outside the relationship for excitement, escape, and/or love.
