Film Showing & Discussion

Join Bob Coscarelli for the third in the series Immigrants in Film, featuring Milos Forman's Ragtime  on Sunday, November 20, at 2 p.m. in the Auditorium.

Based on E.L. Doctorow’s novel, the film follows the intertwining lives of several characters. Among them is African American pianist Coalhouse Walker, Jr. (Howard E. Rollins, Jr.), who becomes embroiled in the lives of a prominent white family. Racial tensions, infidelity, and drama combine with nostalgic events that reflect life in New York during the early 1900s. Directed by Milos Forman, the film was nominated for 8 Academy Awards.
