Everybody loves a bad guy. This talk will focus on two famous movie antiheroes Rick Blaine from Casablanca and Han Solo from Star Wars. Although the antihero is a person who lacks qualities we admire in the hero, both of these characters have achieved iconic cinematic status.

Join lecturer Stephen Kearns from the University of Liverpool to investigate the philosophy behind both portrayals and the ethical dimension of the movies in which they appear. You might notice is the striking similarities between the characters and maybe more surprisingly, the movies themselves! 

Book your free ticket. All welcome.
