NIGHTS & WEEKENDS d. Greta Gerwig & Joe Swanberg, 2008 presented by Tufnell Park Film Club at The Lord Palmerston (28 SEP 20:00).

  • “Now acclaimed with Oscar nominations and box office success for LADY BIRD and LITTLE WOMEN, back in 2008 Greta Gerwig was the unofficial queen of mumblecore: a low-budget subgenre of US independent film characterized by naturalistic acting, an emphasis on dialogue (often improvised) over plot, and a focus on the personal relationships of people in their 20s and 30s. In the case of NIGHTS & WEEKENDS (which Gerwig co-wrote, co-directed and co-produced with her co-star Joe Swanberg) the young couple are separated by two cities (New York and Chigaco). And Gerwig and Swanberg are far from shy when it comes to depicting the disintegration and aftermath of this relationship. (Polite note: the film is very sexually frank.)”
