Image from the film CHARLIE SAYS

Three young women were sentenced to death in the infamous Manson murder case, but when the death penalty was lifted, their sentence became life imprisonment. One young graduate student was sent in to teach them—and through her we witness their transformations as they face the reality of their horrific crimes. “Charlie Says is a fascinating and feminist exploration of Manson’s first victims: the girls themselves.” (LA Times) “Because Manson’s appeal is presented as a manifestation of his followers’ insecurities, Charlie Says feels as relevant as any American movie released this year.” (J. Hoberman, NY Times)

In addition to tonight, screenwriter Guinevere Turner will also speak on Tuesday, March 10 following a screening of American Psycho.

The film and Turner’s visit are cosponsored with the Dept of History, FGSS, and LGBT Studies.
