PLATO'S ACADEMY

AVAILABLE ONLINE NOV 1 - DEC 5 | Four ethnocentric Greek slackers spend their days smugly watching industrious immigrants hard at work in the Plato's Academy neighborhood of Athens.  When one of them discovers that he has Albanian roots, the men's attitudes and their friendship are severely challenged. This intelligent and insightful social satire is generally acknowledged as one of the best Greek films of recent years, praised for transcending the parameters of gentle comedy to seriously examine the issue of immigration and to attempt a redefinition of what it means to be Greek.  The Hollywood Reporter said that director Filippos Tsitos offers "wry wisdom and steady laughs" and "seems to have a genius for...comedy". TICKET PRICE INCLUDES ALL SERVICE FEES.
