**Author Bernhard Schlink will be in attendance for a post film Q+A
Based on the novel of the same name by Bernhard Schlink, this multi-award winning film including a 2009 Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role Oscar for Kate Winslet, is a haunting drama, about middle-aged lawyer Michael Berg as he reflects on the brief but formative sexual relationship he had as a teen with an older woman in 1950s Germany — and his feelings years later upon learning she was on trial for Nazi war crimes.
Presented in Partnership with the College of Humanities and the International Studies Program at the University of Utah and the Utah Humanities Council.
