Description

Examining the representations of citizenship-as-friendship in four films-- The Big Chill , Thelma & Louise , Lost in Translation and Smoke --the author argues that critics have misunderstood liberal democracy's resilience and capacity for self-revision and the cultural resonance of its model of citizenship.

Texte du rabat

Friendship serves as a metaphor for citizenship and mirrors the individual's participation in civic life. "Friendship Fictions" unravels key implications of this metaphor and demonstrates how it can transform liberal culture into a more just and democratic way of life.



Résumé
A criticism often leveled at liberal democratic culture is its emphasis on the individual over community and private life over civic participation. The author shows that citizenship comprises a major theme of popular entertainment, especially Hollywood film, and often takes the form of friendship narratives; and this is no accident.
