The Film Society will present a wide variety of meaningful domestic and International films about Jewish subjects and Jewish values. Jim Ruxin, a longtime University Synagogue member and Adjunct Professor at USC School of Cinematic Arts, will curate the films and host our in-depth discussions.
Watch A Brilliant Young Mind, streaming on Amazon Prime, and join us on Saturday, November 20 at 7:30 p.m. for the discussion. This is a tender film about a young math savant on the spectrum as he learns about love and loss. It features Sally Hawkins and a young Asa Butterfield as a single mother and son. Sweet, fun, and somewhat sad at times, this is a feel-good film for the family that has something to teach us all: love is not a formula, but life itself.
