The Mask You Live In - Psych Movie Club

Join the Psych Movie Club for a discussion of “The Mask You Live In”

"The Mask You Live In" follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America's narrow definition of masculinity. Pressured by the media, their peer group, and even the adults in their lives, our protagonists confront messages encouraging them to disconnect from their emotions, devalue authentic friendships, objectify and degrade women, and resolve conflicts through violence. These gender stereotypes interconnect with race, class, and circumstance, creating a maze of identity issues boys and young men must navigate to become "real" men. 

Experts in neuroscience, psychology, sociology, sports, education, and media also weigh in, offering empirical evidence of the "boy crisis" and tactics to combat it. "The Mask You Live In" ultimately illustrates how we, as a society, can raise a healthier generation of boys and young men.

NOTE: This film contains frequent strong language, including candid conversations that include words boys use to insult each other.
