"Barcelona" 25th Anniversary with Whit Stillman, Tushka Bergen, Chris Eigeman, Taylor Nichols and Mira Sorvino

Showings

Alamo Drafthouse 1 Sat, Jan 11 7:00 PM

Description

Join writer/director Whit Stillman and actors Tushka Bergan, Chris Eigeman, Taylor Nichols and Mira Sorvino for a 25th anniversary screening of "Barcelona," moderated by Jesse Hawthorne Ficks.

Whit Stillman followed his delightful indie breakthrough "Metropolitan" with another clever and garrulous comedy of manners, this one with a darker edge. A pair of preppy yet constitutionally mismatched American cousins—a salesman and a navy officer—argue about romance and politics while working in the beautiful Spanish city of the film’s title. Set during the eighties, "Barcelona" explores topics both heady (American exceptionalism, Cold War foreign policy) and hilarious (the ins and outs of international dating, the proper shaving method) while remaining a constantly witty delight.

Single screening tickets available, or you can choose to buy a double feature ticket and see "Metropolitan" as well. ($35 General Admission, $60 Double Feature with "Metropolitan", 18+)
