The Multicultural Society and Psi Beta Society will host a free showing of the Oscar-award winning movie, “Silver Linings Playbook,” on Wednesday, November 20, at 3:30pm, in room K119.
The movie will then be followed by a discussion of the film.
“Silver Linings Playbook” is an R-rated film that follows the story of a man named Pat, recently returned from a mental institution. As he struggles to cope with his mental instability, and attempts to make amends with his ex-wife, Pat experiences an unexpected turn of events, when he meets a strange woman by the name of Tiffany.
According to Dr. Michael Stovall, adviser for the society, the Multicultural Society tries to take into account the whole range of diversity. These topics could range from disability awareness to human psychology; it doesn’t just have to be about ethnicity or racial groups. The “Silver Linings Playbook” showing will give the Society an opportunity to promote psychology awareness from a diverse point of view.
The Psi Beta Society, which is the national honor society for psychology, is also partnering with the Multicultural Society to sponsor this showing. This film covers human psychology quite frequently, therefore the Psi Beta Society has a huge role in sponsoring this showing
