Based on a true story, Bernie is a comedy starring Jack Black, Shirley MacLaine and Matthew McConaughey. In rural Carthage, TX, assistant funeral director Bernie Tiede was among its most beloved residents. He befriended Marjorie Nugent, an affluent widow known for her sour attitude. After townspeople went months without seeing Marjorie, they were shocked at the news she had been dead for some time – and Bernie was charged with her murder. After the film, Gail Rubin with A Good Goodbye: Funeral Planning for Those Who Don’t Plan to Die will facilitate a discussion about issues the movie raises.
