MISERY

1990 / 107min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: ROB REINER

CAST: JAMES CAAN, KATHY BATES, RICHARD FARNSWORTH, FRANCES STERNHAGEN

The famously strapping James Caan spends much of Misery strapped down, playing an arrogant famous author “saved” from a snowbound car crash site by his “number one fan,” Annie Wilkes (Kathy Bates), only to discover that he’s gone from frying pan to fire. A cultural phenomenon on its release thanks to Bates’s Oscar-winning chipper-crazy performance, Reiner’s film has lost none of its cabin fever squirm or, uh, sledgehammer impact.

Misery is screening as part of the series Written by Stephen King. Click here for more info.
