Description

This devastating social satire is Hal Ashby’s outrageous directorial debut, a film that still feels daring, both stylistically and politically. Young WASP Beau Bridges buys an inner-city row house in New York City, planning to remodel the home once he has evicted its tenants. But he quickly realizes he can use his purchase to rebel against his racist parents and begins clumsily trying to befriend his new tenants. Diana Sands, Marki Bey, Pearl Bailey, Louis Gossett Jr., and Lee Grant co-star; photographed by Gordon Willis. (1970, 112 min, 35mm) -- Feel free to stay for THE LAST BLACK MAN IN SAN FRANCISCO following at 3:30.
