The Historian

Rated NR 124 min. 2014

Fleeing a personal tragedy, Dr. Ben Rhodes takes a job at a new university, in a department chaired by once-celebrated historian Valerian Hadley, who now fights to rekindle his fading career while caring for an elderly father whose health fades faster by the day. Both feel a duty to impart the lessons of the past, even though they cannot seem to come to terms with their own complicated personal histories. Further complicating matters is a promising but needy graduate student, Anna (Jillian Taylor), who worships one and is smitten with the other. This is a dark, funny, humane drama that puts academia under the microscope and finds a mirror of human nature.
