I Could Go On Singing

Intro by Heather Matarazzo!

35mm print Actress Heather Matarazzo (Welcome  to  the  Dollhouse, Our  Guys:  Outrage  in  Glen  Ridge) has always identified with the outsider, so it’s no surprise to learn that she has long carried a torch for the great Judy Garland. Judy’s haunting last film, I COULD GO ON SINGING is a musical melodrama about a singer who returns to London for one last show, and who reunites with the son and the lover (a great Dirk Bogarde) she had left behind. For Matarazzo, the film conveys “the  experience  I’ve had of feeling personally so uncomfortable in my own skin, continually asking others to validate who  I  am, and it truly never being enough.”
