Phi Beta Kappa Delaware Valley Virtual Movie Club
Virtual discussion of the film, "Passing", produced and directed by Rebecca Hall, based on the 1929 novel by Nella Larsen.  Filmed in luminous black & white, "Passing" debuted at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival, is a NY Times Critics "Best 10 films of 2021", and is nominated for a 2022 Golden Globe Award for Ruth Negga's performance.  The film portrays two biracial high school friends who meet unexpectedly in prosperous middle-class adulthood in 1920's New York City, after one has been presenting/"passing" as white. They become increasingly intertwined, upending both of their carefully constructed worlds. View on Netflix. No charge event.
