GENA ROWLANDS: A WOMAN OF INFLUENCE
Double Feature!
GLORIA / MINNIE AND MOSKOWITZ
GLORIA
1980, Sony Repertory, 123 min, USA, Dir: John Cassavetes

Writer-director John Cassavetes was hardly known for crime thrillers, but he made a riveting one in GLORIA. Gena Rowlands earned an Oscar nomination in the tough-as-nails title role, a mobster’s ex-girlfriend on the run through the gritty streets of New York with a young boy being targeted by hit men. Costarring Buck Henry.


MINNIE AND MOSKOWITZ
1971, Universal, 114 min, USA, Dir: John Cassavetes

Minnie Moore is a museum curator whose married boyfriend does little for her self-esteem. Enter parking-lot attendant Seymour Moskowitz, who tells Minnie, “I think about you so much, I forget to go to the bathroom!” As mismatched as the title couple may seem, Gena Rowlands and Seymour Cassel make these wounded but hopeful souls entirely real. While Cassavetes remains conscious of the disconnect between movie-inspired romantic ideals and real-life relationships, he gives an early-’70s New Hollywood spin to the screwball comedy here.


Screening format: 35mm | Actress Gena Rowlands regrets that she is unable to appear on this night as previously announced. She hopes to reschedule her appearance with another event in this series. Please check back for updates.
