Wednesday Movie Club: BATMAN

Wednesday Movie Club: BATMAN In-Person

This film is being presented as part of the Stow-Munroe Falls Public Library's Wednesday Movie Club, a weekly showcase of movies that matter for people who love movies. Attendees will be invited to discuss the film immediately following the screening. Registration is not required.

Following last week's exploration of "method acting," we thought it would be fun to spend the next three weeks taking a closer look at the way three talented method actors interpreted the same role, namely the notorious Batman villain known as "the Joker." We'll start this week by watching Jack Nicholson in BATMAN, Tim Burton's 1989 film also starring Michael Keaton.  As one reviewer put it, "Nicholson has all the great lines; he's so good he puts a spin on the hammiest, hoariest jokes."  

About the Film:

Having witnessed his parents' brutal murder as a child, millionaire philanthropist Bruce Wayne (Michael Keaton) fights crime in Gotham City disguised as Batman, a costumed hero who strikes fear into the hearts of villains. But when a deformed madman who calls himself "The Joker" (Jack Nicholson) seizes control of Gotham's criminal underworld, Batman must face his most ruthless nemesis ever while protecting both his identity and his love interest, reporter Vicki Vale (Kim Basinger).
