My Dinner With Andre

Film Club Presents: Curated by Mariah Balaban

Dir. Louis Malle, 1981, 110 min.

A bold experiment in film narrative that paid off in critical raves and cult status, Louis Malle’s drama consists almost entirely of the dinner conversation of two real-life friends. More or less playing themselves, Andre Gregory and Wallace Shawn wrote their own dialogue, which ranges in subject from the New York theater world to rain forests, and in tone from hilarious to heartbreaking.

 Followed by a conversation with Andre Gregory, Wallace Shawn,  and Bob Balaban and a cocktail reception
