DIRECTOR: CLINT EASTWOOD

Screenwriter Richard LaGravenese will introduce the 11/30 screening.

The quintessential two-fisted tough guy proved himself a master of the old-fashioned melodrama with his adaptation of Robert James Waller’s checkout line bestseller. Eastwood stars as a peripatetic National Geographic photographer passing through Iowa for a routine gig who meets a stranded Italian-American housewife (Meryl Streep) and leaves his heart behind in the Midwest with her. The rare Hollywood film of the post-studio era to depict desire at middle-age, where yearning collides heartbreakingly with circumspection and responsibility.
