1995 / 106min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: GUS VAN SANT

CAST: NICOLE KIDMAN, JOAQUIN PHOENIX, MATT DILLON, ILLEANA DOUGLAS

Through the character of Nicole Kidman’s manipulative, celebrity-fixated meteorologist, Van Sant creates a queasily perspicacious study of the American obsession with fame in this mockumentary loosely based on the true crime case of Pamela Smart, lent satirical sting by screenwriter Buck Henry (The Graduate), and the pitch-perfect performances by Matt Dillon and a young Joaquin Phoenix, respectively playing Kidman’s oblivious husband and teenaged lover-turned-stooge.
