Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Sep 3rd at 12p for Winter Kills at the Somerville 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.
The Somerville Theatre is thrilled to show a new 35mm print of the rarely-screened WINTER KILLS, William Richert’s 1979 black comedy thriller starring Jeff Bridges and John Huston.
This re-release is being presented courtesy of author and filmmaker Quentin Tarantino, a longtime Winter Kills fan and champion.
This thinly veiled and hyper-paranoiac take on the JFK assassination stars Bridges as Nick Kegan, scion of a fabulously wealthy and powerful family headed by patriarch Huston (“the real delight of the film” – Canby, New York Times), as a character based on Joe Kennedy. Bridges soon finds himself going down multiple rabbit holes while trying to unravel the conspiracy behind the murder of a U.S. president, his older brother.
