The Treatment
Introduced by the director Oren Rudavsky, 2006
Sun, Oct 14, 2007 2 PM
Named "Best Film Made in New York" at the Tribeca Film Festival, The Treatment is the debut fiction feature from a well-known director of documentaries.

Rudavsky last visited the Wexner Center in 2004 to introduce his film Hiding and Seeking; he is also the director of A Life Apart: Hasidism in America (1997). The story, based on the novel by Daniel Menaker, follows an emotionally paralyzed young teacher who seeks help from a maniacal Argentine Freudian therapist after breaking up with his girlfriend. While he tries to fend off his therapist-from-Hell, the young man’s life becomes even more complicated after he meets a socialite widow who introduces him to Manhattan’s upwardly mobile circles. Starring Ian Holm, Famke Janssen, and Chris Eigeman. (86 mins., 35mm)

Join us after the film at a casual reception in the café area. Wexner Center and Melton Center members are also invited to come early for a private reception with the filmmaker from 1 to 2 PM.

Cosponsored by Ohio State’s Melton Center for Jewish Studies.
