Full of Wonder Films of Peter Weir: Witness

When: Mon., March 2, 3 p.m. 2015

Harrison Ford stars as Detective John Book, who is assigned to protect a young Amish boy and his mother after the boy witnesses a murder in the big city of Philadelphia. Fearing for the safety of the boy, Book and the family retreat back to the Amish community for protection. Though this was Peter Weir’s first American made film, it resembles his Australian films in the depiction of the ways in which an outsider comes to appreciate and rely on the tightness of a seemingly closed community. (35mm presentation)
