16May9:00 pm11:00 pmScreening "Half Nelson" (2006)CUT x Health Week

Event Details

This month, CUT is joining AUC Health Week! Fostering both mental and physical health is as much about promoting healthy habits as acknowledging the unhealthy ones and openly discussing them in order to help ourselves and those around us; that is why we will screen HALF NELSON (2006) by Ryan Fleck! In popular media, drug abuse is often dramatized, represented overtly stereotypically or simply far-fetched, while in reality substance abuse can be invisible even to those closest to us. With a brilliant performance by Ryan Gosling, HALF NELSON is a humane portrayal of such an addiction which refuses to find an easy and moral way out, and shows the complexity of navigating friendships when addiction becomes too visible to ignore. As always, popcorn will be provided!
