Join us for the last movie in our Book to Film series, “Flowers for Algernon”.
This is the touching story of a gentle, mentally-handicapped man who faces the chance of a lifetime and the hard changes that come with it. After undergoing experimental brain surgery to increase his intelligence, Charlie (Matthew Modine, Have Dreams, Will Travel; TV’s Weeds) is emboldened with his newfound genius, but finds himself questioning the value of his intellect and struggling to accept his former self. He confides in Algernon, a lab mouse who has had the same procedure, and his teacher, Alice (Kelli Williams, TV’s The Practice), who he begins to fall for. Adapted from Daniel Keyes’ timeless novel, Flowers for Algernon is an acclaimed drama of self-discovery, the unbreakable bonds we form with those who understand us, and the capacity we hold to change.
