Movie Night - Blade Runner 2049


Students and Faculty: Join us for dinner at 6, the movie at 7, and discussion afterwards.

Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what's left of society into chaos. K's discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.

For fans of the original Blade Runner, an Easter Egg of a film, a glorious gift for loyalty, for waiting for a follow up. For ... the rest of you, a nice and interesting sci-fi expedition into the consideration what constitutes a soul? Is it a merely physical essence? A factor of being sentient? And what difference does one make? What's the big deal?!? Or ... we follow a robot, whose job is terminating other robots, who curiously begins to ask itself the same questions in a results only oriented future unconcerned as you, Dear Reader, with the answers. Sci-fi greatness awaits.
