This event has passed. Hayley Atwell Selects: Toni Erdmann with Phillipp Nielsen
The Picture House ambassador Hayley Atwell hosts Film Study for Adults! Hayley brings her in-depth knowledge of film —and a slate of exciting guests, all with unique perspectives on film and the industry — to TPH for fascinating discussions.
At the next Hayley Atwell Selects welcomes Phillipp Nielsen to discuss the film Toni Erdmann.
Toni Erdmann Synopsis
Winfried doesn’t see much of his hard-working daughter Ines, so he decides to surprise her with a visit. It’s an unwelcome imposition, because practical joker Winfried loves to annoy his daughter with corny pranks — and worse, take jabs at her lifestyle of long meetings, hotel bars, and performance reports. Winfried agrees to return home to Germany, but returns as flashy Toni Erdmann, his smooth-talking alter ego. Disguised in a tacky suit, wig, and fake teeth, Toni barges into Ines’ professional life, claiming to be her CEO’s life coach. Among the madness, Winifried and Ines grow closer, and Ines begins to understand that her eccentric father might deserve some place in her life after all.
This class will function much like a book club, attendees should watch the assigned movie at home through available streaming services and arrive at class online for a robust discussion led by Hayley.
