Film: Slums of Beverly Hills (in 35mm)

June 14 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

$5 – $10

Based in part on her own childhood, writer-director Tamara Jenkins’s feature debut is a down-to-earth comedy about bright yet incredulous teenager Vivian Abromowitz (Natasha Lyonne) and her family’s peripatetic life between crummy apartments in Beverly Hills as her failed car salesman father (Alan Arkin) is hellbent on maintaining a 90210 address to take advantage of the area’s esteemed schools. Premiering in Directors’ Fortnight at the 51st Cannes Film Festival, this sweet, off-kilter comedy alternates exteriors of neighborhood dingbats and duplexes with period-specific shag interiors for a fully-drawn slice-of-life of a family carving their own path on the fringes of one of the country’s most sought-after zip codes.

DIRECTED/WRITTEN BY: Tamara Jenkins. WITH: Natasha Lyonne, Alan Arkin, Marisa Tomei, David Krumholtz. 1998. 91 min. USA. Color. English. Rated R. 35mm.
