Join Ellen Burstyn and Kristi Zea
For a presentation of
ALICE DOESN’T LIVE HERE ANYMORE
Directed by Martin Scorsese
With Ellen Burstyn, Kris Kristofferson, Dianne Ladd, Jodie Foster and Harvey Keitel
USA, 1974, 112 minutes
Films like The Last Picture Show and The Exorsist made Elllen Burstyn of of the hottest names in Hollywood and gave her the opportunity to make a film of her choosing. What she wanted was a story about real lives, directed by one of the young Hollywood filmmakers of the 1970′s. The result was a portrait of America, and life as a woman, that was much different from the America of the Hollywood dream factory. It earned her an Academy Award for Best Actress.
After the screening, Ellen will discuss her groundbreaking film; and Kristi Zea (who has received Academy Award nominations as Producer for As Good As It Gets and as Production Designer for Revolutionary Road) will help provide insight into the cultural climate Alice was made in, and why it has been a source of inspiration to her as she prepares to direct a film this spring.
Hand selected wine provided compliments of the Village Vintner and Hor d’oeuvres and dessert provided by Mimi’s Plate will follow the discussion.
