AFS and Richard Linklater Present: LOST IN AMERICA

May 15 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm - $11.25

Hosted by Richard Linklater with a post-screening audience discussion.

Albert Brooks’ curveball of a road movie features a yuppie couple, played by Brooks and Julie Hagerty, who ditch all their possessions and hit the road in an RV in search of a dimly understood “Easy Rider” ideal. Very funny, with comic situations that brew up out of small details. In many ways Brooks’ style was a precursor of comic trends that took hold decades later.

ABOUT JEWELS IN THE WASTELAND

AFS Founder and Artistic Director Richard Linklater returns with the latest cycle of Jewels In The Wasteland, a series designed to spotlight some of the best films made during the 1980s. This was a time when zillion-dollar studio blockbusters became the norm, while in other corners of the industry, a new kind of independent cinema was taking shape, and auteurs young and old made important work.

PRESENTED BY MUBI.
