KRAMER VS. KRAMER Special Guests:

Robert Benton 
  • Robert Benton – Three-time Academy Award–winning Director, Screenwriter and Producer; credits include Kramer vs. Kramer, Places in the Heart, and Bonnie & Clyde
  • Avery Corman – Novelist; books include Kramer vs. Kramer, Oh, God, and The Old Neighborhood
  • Raoul Felder – Noted Divorce Attorney

In Robert Benton’s 1979 Kramer vs. Kramer—the most influential, if not the first, film to spotlight child custody battles and the law’s settled presumptions about parental roles—Dustin Hoffman stars as a workaholic father left to care for his son when his wife, played by Meryl Streep, leaves them. He is ultimately drawn into a bitter legal fight when she returns seeking custody of their child.

Forum on Law, Culture & Society

The Forum on Law, Culture & Society is a public humanities program that invites you to satisfy your intellectual curiosity on matters of law, justice, and civil society in a dynamic and engaging town hall setting. The Forum brings together influential artists and leading public figures in conversation with you—the audience—to explore ideas about law and justice, and how the two are integrated into the broader culture.

The Forum allows you to connect, discuss, and—most of all—think about the way legal matters affect society and influence the artistic imagination. The Forum is open to everyone and is intended to be enjoyed by all those who appreciate art, culture, and ideas. So join our Forum community. Come to our events. Watch highlights of our programs. Read or comment on our blog.  Like us on facebook and/or follow us on Twitter.  And become part of something that is important and smart.
