The classic stage hit gets the Hollywood treatment in the story of Elwood P. Dowd who makes friends with a spirit taking the form of a human-sized rabbit named Harvey that only he sees (and a few privileged others on occasion also.) After his sister tries to commit him to a mental institution, a comedy of errors ensues. Elwood and Harvey become the catalysts for a family mending its wounds and for romance blossoming in unexpected places. Discussant for this film will be Eowyn Ahlstrom.

"The Truman Show" (1998)
Truman is a man whose life is a fake one. The place he lives is in fact a big studio with hidden cameras everywhere, and all his friends and people around him are actors who play their roles in the most popular TV-series in the world: The Truman Show. Truman thinks that he is an ordinary man with an ordinary life and has no idea about how he is exploited. Until one day... he finds out everything. Will he react?
Discussant for this film will be Leslie Smith-Frank.
How do these movies fit with mindfulness? Join us to find out! Moderated by CFM staff and special guests, the CFM Movie Night series explores the deeper themes and subject matter of the films, which have been chosen for their connections to mindfulness, meditation, and related topics.
Free and open to all - please join us!
