Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Apr 13th at 7:15pm for Contempt at the Brattle Theatre . Look for Sean wearing a nametag in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
p.s. Tickets for the Boston Independent Film Festival are now on sale. The film club will be seeing “Mongol” on Sunday, April 27th at 7pm at the Coolidge. Head on over to the festival’s site to preorder tickets for this and any of the festival screenings!
“Starring the incomparable and exquisite Brigitte Bardot, CONTEMPT is the story of a woman who gradually develops an overwhelming contempt for her husband (Michel Piccoli), a screenwriter beset by doubts when he is hired to doctor the script for a new film version of The Odyssey. He finds himself caught between the director (legend Fritz Lang playing himself), who wants to remain faithful to Homer, and the vulgar American producer (Jack Palance) who is interested only in filling the screen with topless mermaids. Adapted from the novel by Alberto Moravia, featuring a sublime score by Georges Delerue, shot in breathtaking CinemaScope by Raoul Coutard, CONTEMPT in a new 35mm print is undoubtedly the cinematic treat of the spring!”
