Forgotten Cinema: Beautiful Girls
Forgotten Cinema Season 8!!!!
Since we begin in the month of love, it's only fair that we start this season with some romance, starting with 1996's Beautiful Girls; directed by Ted Demme and starring SO MANY PEOPLE!!! Timothy Hutton, Matt Dillion, Michael Rapaport, Rosie O'Donnell, Noah Emmerich, Mira Sorvino, a very young Natalie Portman...oh and Uma Thurman! Honestly the list goes on and on.
Join the Mikes as they discuss the way that this film is able to take a group of seemingly unlikeable guys in their 30's and turn them into characters that you care about, understand and root for. Mike Butler and Mike Field also argue about Hutton's character's relationship with young Natalie Portman and whether or not it is a fantasy of lost youth or just plain creepy. The writing, the setting, the acting and the themes of this star studded romantic dramedy are all broken down!
So grab your popcorn and soda, please notice the exits at the front and rear of the auditorium, and settle down for Forgotten Cinema.
