Film and Discussion: Carnage by Roman Polanski

Welcome to another Film and Discussion evening!

Sunday November 6th at 19.15:
Carnage by Roman Polanski, USA 2011, 80 min
After a playground fight that left one of their preteen sons slightly injured, two well-off Brooklyn couples meet to discuss, in civilized terms and in the spirit of community, how the aggressor can make amends to the injured. The slightly forced veneer of politeness with which the two couples’ meeting begins soon degenerates into their own sort of childish playground squabbling. Made from a stage play this film all the same is very dynamic and alive. Is it also funny?
