Cloud Atlas

This weekend I saw Cloud Atlas, an amazing film based on David Mitchell’s novel, that is surprisingly relevant to many of our course topics including metanarratives, freedom, slavery, cannibalism, gender norms, class, excess, consumption, courtship, performed identities, religion, comestibles, the other, oppression, good vs. evil, and power struggles. So if anyone has some free time and are interested in an extraordinary movie, I definitely recommend it!
