Round Midnight
Sunday, April 29, 2012 @ 2PM


'Round Midnight tells the story of an African American tenor saxophone player in Paris in the 1950s who is befriended by an unsuccessful French graphic designer who idolizes the musician and who tries desperately to help him to escape alcohol abuse. The protagonist jazzman, "Dale Turner," was based on a composite of real-life jazz legends Lester Young (tenor sax) and the tortured and enigmatic Bud Powell (piano). Real-life jazz legend Dexter Gordon brilliantly portrays the fictional tenor sax player Dale Turner.  He  was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role and won a Grammy for the film's soundtrack entitled "The Other Side of Round Midnight" in the category for Best Instrumental Jazz Performance, Soloist. Herbie Hancock won the Academy Award for Best Music, Original Score.

USA/France, 1986, 133 min, Drama, English and French with English subtitles, Bertrand Tavernier, dir.
