Post-film discussion with filmmaker Leslye Headland! 35mm print

Before the release of her hilarious new romantic comedy SLEEPING WITH OTHER PEOPLE, writer-director (and fellow 35mm purist) Leslye Headland joins us to present a print of one of her personal favorites and biggest inspirations, the smash hit 1988 comedy by the late, great Mike Nichols.

“This Mike Nichols-directed comedy/drama/romance has got everything. Sex. Romance. Money. Power. Harrison Ford. It ushered in the ‘Cinderella’ era of Rom-Coms with a heroine as playful as the title. She was neither slut-shamed nor punished for her ambition. Her triumph was professional AND personal. Too bad no one followed suit for the next two decades.” – Leslye Headland
