SPEAKER: Bruce Fein
Bruce Fein commands impressive experience and influence in the corridors of both national and international power. He graduated from Harvard Law School with honors in 1972.
After a coveted federal judicial clerkship, he joined the U.S. Department of Justice where he served as assistant director of the Office of Legal Policy, legal adviser to the assistant attorney general for antitrust, and the associate deputy attorney general. Mr. Fein then was appointed general counsel of the Federal Communications Commission, followed by an appointment as research director for the Joint Congressional Committee on Covert Arms Sales to Iran.
He recently served on the American Bar Association's Task Force on Presidential signing statements.
“In a futuristic world, a strict regime has eliminated war by
suppressing emotions: books, art and music are strictly
forbidden and feeling is a crime punishable by death. Cleric John Preston (Christian Bale) is a top ranking government agent responsible for destroying those who resist the rules. When he misses a dose of Prozium, a mind-altering drug that hinders emotion, Preston, who has been trained to enforce the strict laws of the new regime, suddenly becomes the only person
capable of overthrowing it.”
