Course Overview: 

Join the PLC and Dr. Milena Edwards for a screening and discussion of the Oscar-nominated film Phantom Thread, a period piece set in 1950s London that follows an artist’s complicated romantic and family relationships. Following the screening, Dr. Milena Edwards will discuss the film through a psychoanalytic lens. Popcorn will be served.


Milena Edwards, Psy.D., grew interested in film as an undergraduate at UC Berkeley where she majored in Rhetoric and Film Studies. Her interest continued throughout graduate school, choosing Michael Haneke’s film The Piano Teacher to explore the use of perverse defenses within narcissistic object relationships in her dissertation. When not enjoying the latest arthouse film, she divides her time between private practice in Oakland and her work as incoming Director of Training at Access Institute for Psychological Services.
