OSCAR SEASON AT THE AMERICAN CINEMATHEQUE 2015
Double Feature! Director Richard Linklater in Person!
BOYHOOD / DAZED AND CONFUSED
Discussion between films with director Richard Linklater.
BOYHOOD
2014, IFC Films, 165 min, USA, Dir: Richard Linklater

Among the most remarkable films of recent memory, BOYHOOD was shot over a 12-year period to follow the fractured family life of Mason Evans Jr. (Ellar Coltrane) as he moves from grade school to college. As his divorced parents, Patricia Arquette and Ethan Hawke are equally affecting despite taking different approaches to raising kids. Impressive as the logistical hurdles Linklater and his team surmounted, what’s most memorable about this coming-of-age drama is how right it gets the little moments of this boy’s life - a sad stare as mom drives him away from his hometown for the last time, an encouraging note passed to him at his new school, or an early morning walk with a girlfriend.


DAZED AND CONFUSED
1993, Gramercy Pictures, 102 min, USA, Dir: Richard Linklater

The last day of class at a Texas high school in 1976 brings together jocks, nerds and stoners in this cult teen comedy set to a classic rock soundtrack. Jason London, Ben Affleck, Milla Jovovich and Renée Zellweger are among the students gearing up for the summer; Matthew McConaughey is unforgettable as the older guy who still parties with the kids.


Screening format: DCP | Please note that THE LADY EVE/THE PALM BEACH STORY double feature was moved from its original date on February 6th and will be screening February 11th instead. We apologize for any inconvenience.
