Les liaisons dangereuses - 5:00pm-8:00pm

Ingram 100: Lecture Hall
Roger Vadim's 1959 Les liaisons dangereuses transposes the intrigue of Laclos's scandalous eighteenth-century novel to mid-century pastimes of skiing and American jazz. Starring Jeanne Moreau and Gerard Philippe with music by Thelonious Monk, this story of manipulation, sex--and maybe love--confirms the adage that the best lovers are the worst enemies. This film will be screened in conjunction with FREN 421. For more information, contact Dr. Giovanna Urdangarain, urdangga@plu.edu or 253.535.7240.
