LUNCH WITH BOOKS: Wheeling Film Society Conversation - Annie Hall

November 14, 2017

Event starts at 12:00 PM.

Free screening at Towngate Theatre, Friday, Nov. 10 at 7:30 pm

Conversation follows, Tuesday, Nov. 14 at noon in the Library Auditorium. 

Annie Hall marked a turning point in the career of Woody Allen, as he moved from the pure silliness of his early slapstick, one-liner movies to the invention of a new genre, the “dramedy.” Originally conceived as yet another star-vehicle for the writer-director, the film evolved during production, in which hours of scenes were shot and discarded; Allen finally “found” his multiple-Oscar-winning film in the editing room, when he shifted more of the focus from his own character to that of his co-star, Diane Keaton, who won Best Actress for a woman finding herself during the era of women’s rights. Allen would subsequently write several more Oscar-winning roles for actresses. Come for the laughs, but leave with a wistful sense of the difficulty of relationships.

WJU Professor John Whitehead hosts.
