Post-film discussion with Sebastian Silva!
DCP projection What could be queerer than the unlikely love story of Ruth Gordon and Bud Cort? Not much, and we couldn’t be more excited to have director Sebastian Silva, of this summer’s wonderful, hilarious Crystal Fairy (2013), present this Hal Ashby classic. You probably know this, but here it goes: 20-year-old Harold (Cort, who lived on-and-off with Groucho Marx for seven years) is a suicidal wealthy heir who meets the 79-year-old, eccentric Ruth (Gordon), who teaches him the value of banjo playing, and “making the most of his time on earth.” Filled with the most uplifting, inspiring gallows-humor you’ve ever seen, don’t miss HAROLD AND MAUDE – and feel free to sing along to Cat Stevens’ “If You Want to Sing Out, Sing Out.“
