Join the Tattered Cover Book Store, UCD's College of Arts & Media, KUNC 91.5, and the Sie FilmCenter (in the Lowenstein CulturePlex, next door to the Tattered Cover Colfax Avenue) for an exploration of the world of classic movies, hosted by film critic Howie Movshovitz.

This month we’ll see the 1994 Steve James classic Hoop Dreams.
The movie follows two gifted young African-American boys in Chicago, William Gates and Arthur Agee, who have dedicated their lives to becoming professional basketball players. First, they have to get through high school and college, which is not easy for either of them. The film is precise and exhaustive in its observations—and thrilling because of it. (170 minutes)
