DIRECTOR: MARTIN SCORSESE
CAST: RAY LIOTTA, ROBERT DE NIRO, JOE PESCI
A guided tour through the world of organized crime in New York City in the 1960s and 70s as told by Ray Liotta’s Henry Hill, Scorsese’s brutal and blackly funny film packs in all of the swing and elation of youthful bandit brio and all the crash-and-burn comedown that comes later on, with the distinct tang of insider authenticity palpable throughout. Featuring Joe Pesci and Robert De Niro as Hill’s associates, and an unbroken string of unforgettable vignettes. Be there, or be a schnook. The screening will include a featurette on producer Irwin Winkler’s inimitable career, and a conversation between Winkler and screenwriter Nick Pileggi.
Irwin Winkler will be signing copies of his A Life in Movies: Stories from 50 Years in Hollywood following the screening.
