    Science on Screen: Crimes and Misdemeanors

    Woody Allen intertwines two storylines in this penetrating, acidly funny tale about the complexity of human choices and the moral microcosms they represent. Judah Rosenthal (Martin Landau) is a prominent ophthalmologist and family man who resorts to desperate measures when his mistress threatens to ruin his life. Meanwhile, married documentary filmmaker Cliff Stern (Woody Allen) woos an attractive production assistant (Mia Farrow) while directing a profile of his brother-in-law (a priceless Alan Alda), a pompous sitcom producer who represents everything Cliff despises. Before the film, Northeastern University social psychology professor David DeSteno explores the latest science behind human character and moral decision-making. Dr. DeSteno is co-author of the book "Out of Character: Surprising Truths about the Liar, Cheat, Sinner (and Saint) Lurking in All of Us".
