Candidates for Greatness

This 3-part film series presents individuals who inspired, challenged, and provoked our beliefs and understanding of the human condition.
This month's film is De-Lovely (2004), starring Kevin Kline, Ashley Judd, and Jonathan Pryce. It is an original musical portrait of American composer Cole Porter, filled with his unforgettable songs. Porter looks back on his life as if it was one of his spectacular stage shows, with the people and events of his life becoming the actors and action onstage. Through elaborate production numbers and popular hits like "Anything Goes," "It's De-Lovely," and "Night and Day," Porter's elegant, excessive past comes to light - including his deeply complicated relationship with his wife and muse, Linda Lee Porter..
Film discussions led by Russ Notar, who taught the enjoyment of film at the University of Delaware, George Mason University, and Delaware Humanities.
