Hudsucker Proxy : Worth using in your Innovation class

I am attaching a video from New York Times, where A.O.Scott reviews Coen brothers’ Hudsucker Proxy. The movie is one of the funniest by Coen Brothers and we often recommend it to students to understand better (and with some humour) the dynamics of organizational change and innovation.  It’s an interesting story about how an idea, no matter how dumb it appears to be, could turn out to be a huge fad.  If you happen to teach Change Management, Innovation or something similar, I recommend to use this movie in your classroom.

This movie presents one of the best performances by Paul Newman and Jennifer Jason Leigh. In fact Paul Newman’s performance is especially interesting as he potrays a completely de-glamourized character where he neither uses his signature smile or charisma. A highly recommended watch!!
