We see the same story viewed from two different perspectives -- and it's not really the same story at all. I haven't seen this yet, but it's highlighted in Mary Litch's chapter on relativism in Philosophy Through Film.

This is a light, cute comedy in which we see a couple's relationship from both their perspectives, yielding two very different stories. The two perspectives are exaggerated for dramatic effect.

I am seeking movies for a curriculum on Film Studies & Philosophy I'm writing for my homeschooled teen-ager and me. This list concerns relativism. Multiple perspective films explore the fact that people have very different conceptual schemes. Comments and suggestions are enthusiastically welcomed. :-)
