I've enjoyed the UCR Lit Flick series this summer, but I'm regretful to report this was my least favorite movie shown. I hadn't seen it; and now I know why! Too bad the Gwenyth Paltrow version was not shown--my favorite--and it stayed fairly true to the novel. As always, really enjoyed Tod's moderation!!

Good to compare different versions, lively discussion & amusing adaptation of novel—although No Colin Firth! 😉

I was at this event yesterday and was shocked and appalled at the lack of balance and nuance with the speakers. They pained all of animal research, animal consumption, animal torture with one broad brush. Neither of them has ever performed animal research and they are from English and Gender studies respectively. Supposed they have benefited from advances in animal research but failed to mention any of that in their remarks. Osher and UCR should strive to put on more balanced events that inform the public instead of serving as an echo chamber to radical opinions that can harm crucial advances in science and health.
