What’s better than one Robin Williams? How about five of him? Find out for sure on Monday, February 25 for the Dinner and Movie featuring, “Being Human.” In five distinct yet cleverly interlocked roles, Williams is a cave dweller, a Roman slave, a medieval wayfarer, a Portuguese nobleman shipwrecked in Africa and a modern Manhattanite whose home life has hit the rocks. Each character reaches for survival, love, belonging – for all the things that made humankind draw together in the first place. Each is a human being faced with an unforgettable and universal challenge: Being Human. Deane Tucker, Professor of Humanities at Chadron State College will facilitate the discussion which will include a light meal. The film is rated PG-13 and is 122 minutes, WWC is planning to participate in the discussion. The film begins at 6 p.m.
