Florida Tech Psycho-Cinema Presents Good Night and Good Luck
MELBOURNE, FLA. — On Friday, Oct. 20, Florida Tech’s film discussion series, Psycho-Cinema: Psychology and the Movies, will present Good Night and Good Luck.
The movie and subsequent discussion will take place in Evans Library, Room P-133 (separate entrance on side of library).
The critically praised 2005 drama gave George Clooney, who also acted in the movie, two academy award nominations, for best director and best original
screenplay. Among its 50 nominations and 19 wins for a variety of film awards were Venice Film Festival awards for best actor and best screenplay.
The story centers on the uncompromising career of newsman Edward R. Murrow, played by David Straithairn, whose work helped to bring down 1950s communist
hunter Senator Joseph McCarthy. Murrow’s trademark close for his CBS evening reports was, “Good night and good luck.”
Florida Tech School of Psychology faculty members Dr. Thomas Peake, and Dr. James Oelschlager, graduate James Ferro and Gene Shepherd M.D. will be on hand
to lead a discussion with the audience. The movie and refreshments are free.
Evans Library is in the center of campus. For more information, call (321) 674-8050.
