Bob Coscarelli, professor emeritus at College of Lake County, introduces the film and leads the discussion after the showing.

During the 1960s the film studios were collapsing and the industry was looking for ways to appeal to a younger generation.  Our spring film series will discuss the dramatic changes that were occurring in the film industry by looking at four new style film musicals: The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, La La Land, Xanadu, and Yentl. 

The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, written and directed by Jacques Demy in 1964, is an award-winning French romantic musical film.  It stars Nino Castelnuovo and an exquisite Catherine Deneuve as young lovers in late 1950's Normandy, France.  When the man is drafted into the army, his pregnant girlfriend is left behind.  The film then follows their futures over the next six years.  Michel Legrand composed all of the music to which the dialogue is sung.
