HGSA’s “Bad History Movie Night”
The HGSA is hosting its first social event of the year for graduate students. Take a well-deserved break, channel your inner critic, and watch some of the movie industry’s worst portrayals of history with us!
This month’s movie is “Timeline” (2003) starring Paul Walker, Frances O’Conner, and Gerard Butler as archaeology students sent back in time to rescue their professor who is stuck in France during the Hundred Years War. And if THAT isn’t enough to convince you, the film – which has a rousing 13% on Rotten Tomatoes – was described by The Hollywood Reporter as “Glorious so-bad-it’s good entertainment.”
We hope this event will be an opportunity for graduate students to meet others in the department, laugh a little bit, and lament over Hollywood’s blatant disregard for historical accuracy. Come join us!
Date: Wednesday, October 27th
Time: 7:30 p.m.
Location: Ballantine 330
