LOVE & DEATH ON LONG ISLAND + Q&A
29th January 2018 @ 18:10 - 20:30
BFI presents: LOVE & DEATH ON LONG ISLAND + Q&A with director Richard Kwietniowski
This delightful comedy stars John Hurt as a widowed novelist man drawn to a heartthrob actor.
Hurt plays Giles De’Ath, a widowed, slightly stuffy novelist who discovers an appetite for low-brow B-movies and becomes infatuated with teen heartthrob Ronnie Bostock (Priestley), going to extreme lengths to engineer a meeting with the young actor. This delightful comedy offers a gentle insight into a man bewildered by the world, with a touching innocence that’s impossible not to be seduced by.
Part of the JOHN HURT season.
