A NEW LEAF
HELD OVER! Must End Thursday, July 18
(1971) Inheritance-denied playboy Walter Matthau contemplates two solutions: suicide or rich marriage. Enter nerdy heiress/botany professor Elaine May. May’s directing debut. 35mm. Approx. 102 min.
“Brilliantly staged and performed… illustrates how fluidly May fuses verbal and physical comedy.”
– Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
“Reveals the essence of marital love more brutally than many confrontational melodramas.”
– Richard Brody, The New Yorker
