GUESS-WHO-DINNER-FILM-NOTE

Need proof that racial tension is still alive in 2017? Check out how resonant 1967’s Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner feels 50 years later.

Starring Spencer Tracy, Katherine Hepburn, and Sidney Poitier, this sharp comedy tells of a college student bringing her new black boyfriend home to meet her progressive, liberal white parents— who turn out to not be quite as progressive as they initially thought.

The smash hit 2017 movie Get Out borrows heavily from the premise of this film.

2-4pm. Wednesday, August 9.
