The Film Club Presents: "My Dinner with Andre" with Wallace Shawn and Andre Gregory in person!
Presented by The Film Club, and Mariah Balaban.
Join us for a screening of "My Dinner with Andre," followed by a conversation between Wallace Shawn and Andre Gregory moderated by Bob Balaban.
In Louis Malle's captivating and philosophical My Dinner with Andre, actor and playwright Wallace Shawn sits down with friend and theater director Andre Gregory at an Upper West Side restaurant, and the two proceed into an alternately whimsical and despairing confessional on love, death, money, and all the superstition in between. Playing variations on their own New York honed personas, Shawn and Gregory, who also wrote the screenplay, dive in with introspective, intellectual gusto, and Malle captures it all with a delicate, artful detachment. A fascinating freeze-frame of cosmopolitan culture, My Dinner with Andre remains a unique work in cinema history.
