Cinema and Community is the first book-length study of the way mainstream commercial cinema represents society's complex relationship with community. Critically engaging with the idea and practice of community, it provides an original and substantial analysis of contemporary films that treat community as a significant theme.
Drawing on the work of major writers such as Zygmunt Bauman and Hamid Naficy, D.W. McKiernan explores how the impact of socio-economic change on communities finds expression in films as diverse as Ae Fond Kiss, Calendar Girls, The Idiots, In This World, Lilya 4-Ever, The Magdalene Sisters and Pleasantville.
