The screening on Sunday 13 August (17.00) will be introduced by The Skinny’s Film Editor Jamie Dunn, who will discuss Jonathan Demme’s cinematic legacy.
An anarchic cult classic from 1986, Something Wild shows Jonathan Demme at his most diverse – mixing up a heady cocktail of screwball comedy, road movie, character study and unconventional thriller. Jeff Daniels stars as straight-laced banker Charles Driggs, whose dull life changes when he meets irrepressible free-spirit Lulu (Melanie Griffith). At first their relationship is charged with unpredictable excitement, but things soon take a dark turn when her ex-convict husband shows up and tries to win Lulu back. Screening on 35mm.
Screening as part of GFT CineMasters: Jonathan Demme season alongside Stop Making Sense at GFT, Philadelphia and Rachel Getting Married.
