“Beautiful Boy” (2010; R)

Introduction by Dr. David Hughes (Political Science)

With this film we have chosen a topic that, unfortunately, has featured prominently in the news and on the political agenda this year: mass shootings and gun violence

“The death of a child is a calamity. When that child has gone on a killing rampage at his campus and then taken his own life, it must be a tragedy so fundamental that it paralyzes thought. “Beautiful Boy” gives us a glimpse of the young student on the night before his murders, and then is about how his parents live with what he has done.” – Roger Ebert
