The French Are Coming

Florida Atlantic University is getting its French on. Not in the smelly cheese or snooty aristocrats kind of way but the French cinema kind of way. The department of languages, linguistics, and comparative literature in the Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters is presenting a monthlong French Film Festival set run at 6 p.m. every Thursday through February 28 in the Performing Arts Building, Room 101, located at 777 Glades Road at the Boca Raton campus. Not only will French movies be shown but a discussion will be held afterward for all those wishing to participate. Don't worry if you don't speak the language of love; there will be subtitles. The films that are going to be viewed are Le Havre, Les Hommes Libres ("Free Men"), White Material, Film Socialisme, and Le Gamin Au Vélo ("The Boy With a Bike"). Visit fau.edu/sota, or call 561-297-2533.
Thursdays, 6 p.m. Starts: Feb. 7. Continues through Feb. 28, 2013
