This event is a part of David Lynch Revisited: A Retrospective Film Series
Guest Speaker: Steven Rea, Film Critic, Philadelphia Inquirer/Philly.com
A blonde actress is preparing for her biggest role yet, but when she finds herself falling for her co-star, she realizes that her life is beginning to mimic the fictional film that they’re shooting. Adding to her confusion is the revelation that the film is a remake of a doomed Polish production, “47,” which was never finished due to an unspeakable tragedy. And, that’s only the beginning. Soon, a seemingly endless onslaught of indescribably bizarre situations flashes across the screen: a sitcom featuring humans in bunny suits, a parallel story set in a wintry Poland, a houseful of dancing streetwalkers, screwdrivers in stomachs, menacing Polish carnies, and much, much more.
Run Time: 179 Mins
Cast: Laura Dern, Jeremy Irons, Justin Theroux
