West Shore Community College’s 50th anniversary classic Hollywood film series, in collaboration with Manistee’s Vogue Theater, continues on May 16, at 7:30 p.m., with the screening of the 2001 drama/romance film “A Beautiful Mind” starring Russel Crowe.
The film is inspired by events in the life of John Forbes Nash Jr., and in part is based on the biography "A Beautiful Mind" by Sylvia Nasar.
From the heights of notoriety to the depths of depravity, John Forbes Nash Jr. (Russel Crowe) experienced it all. A mathematical genius, he made an astonishing discovery early in his career and stood on the brink of international acclaim. But the handsome and arrogant Nash soon found himself on a painful and harrowing journey of self-discovery.
“A Beautiful Mind” won four Academy Awards including best picture and best director for Ron Howard.
Two films from each decade of the college’s existence (1967 - 2017) are being screened until June 2017. The remaining film in the series will be shown on June 13, at 7:30 p.m.
Moviegoers will be charged the same ticket price for the decade in which the films were released.
