Philosophy @ the Movies: I Heart Huckabees
November 17, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Join the Philosophy Department for a viewing of I Heart Huckabees (2004)!
Environmentalist Albert (Jason Schwartzman) enlists the services of “existential detectives” Bernard (Dustin Hoffman) and Vivian (Lily Tomlin) to solve the meaning of a succession of strange coincidences. The investigators conclude that the backstabbing Brad (Jude Law) — a public relations manager at big-box retailer Huckabees — is at the root of Albert’s angst. Brad tries to turn the tables, however, by hiring the philosophic duo for his own nefarious purposes.
- Original Language: English
- Director: David O. Russell
“I Heart Huckabees certainly isn’t for everyone, but audiences attuned to its quirky wavelength will find a singularly brainy screwball comedy that refuses to pander.” – Rotten Tomatoes
Discussion to follow. This event is free and open to all students – pizza will be provided!
