In each of the following movies, the hero wants money, revenge, or yearns to get the girl. How he achieves these goals will take us through some cinematic shenanigans and plain, old fashioned magic tricks. We will watch the three films in the order of the historical era they represent: The Illusionist (1892 Austria), The Sting (l930’s United States) and Side Effects (modern United States).
Peggy Mooers is a movie buff who has presented many film classes for SOAR, the most recent: “The Films of Robin Williams.”
