Gena Rowlands will be in attendance for a Q&A following the 3pm screening on Sunday.
A thriller with an elegiac mood. Gloria Swenson (Rowlands) finds herself on the run with a young Puerto Rican boy after his family is killed in a mob hit in her apartment building. She’s a reluctant guardian—tough and unsentimental, with mob connections of her own—but instinct takes over. Once she’s fired her gun into a car full of gangsters, the lives they knew are gone, and with each turn of the plot it becomes clearer that they are everything to each other. Shot on location in the Bronx, Harlem, and Washington Heights.
