Sharon Stone made an auspicious - if brief - debut on film in a non speaking role in Woody Allen's STARDUST MEMORIES; the part was the first collaboration with an acclaimed director for an actress who would go on to work with Martin Scorsese, Albert Brooks, Sidney Lumet, Paul Verhoeven and many other noted filmmakers. Her star-making turn as the brilliant femme fatale in Verhoeven's BASIC INSTINCT was the first in a series of rich parts in films such as LAST DANCE, BROKEN FLOWERS and Scorsese's CASINO, for which Stone won a Golden Globe. As comfortable with comedy (most notably in Albert Brooks' THE MUSE) as wrenching drama and comic book action, Stone recalls the golden age of Hollywood glamour in roles that are as dynamic as they are complex.
Join us for a tribute to the career of Sharon Stone, including a screening of THE QUICK AND THE DEAD.
Due to a sudden schedule conflict, Sharon Stone regrets that she will not be able to appear in person at the Aero Theatre.
