AN UNMARRIED WOMAN &
AN UNMARRIED WOMAN
Directed by Paul Mazursky
(1978) Jill Clayburgh’s got it all: a 16-year marriage, nice kid, an enjoyable job at an art gallery — but then weaselly husband Michael Murphy leaves her for a tie seller at Bloomingdale’s. Both criticized and praised by feminists, with 100% acclaim for in-every-scene Clayburgh. 35mm studio archive print. Approx. 124 min.
12:30, 4:50, 9:15
“Mazursky finds the right tone again and again. And it’s not always very easy to find, because he wants to make his film both true and funny, not sacrificing the laughs for the truth.”
– Roger Ebert
“AN INSTANT-CLASSIC DRAMA, starring the luminous and lyrical Jill Clayburgh. Mazursky applies a light and graceful touch to matters of intimate agony. Mazursky’s achievement is distinctively choreographic: for all the trenchant conversation, he sets the characters into mad motion, alone and together—jogging, dancing, fighting, strolling, embracing—and even the static set pieces, in bars and at dinner tables, have the sculptural authority of frozen ballets.”
– Richard Brody, The New Yorker
Directed by Irvin Kershner
Starring George Segal and Eva Marie Saint
(1970) Angst in suburbia. Commercial artist George Segal makes good money but never enough, while stalwart wife Eva Marie Saint tries to hang on until that darned closed-circuit security camera shows her party guests one tryst too many. 35mm. Approx. 89 min.
“Loving’s world is so greatly an extension of the character Segal creates that I cannot happily imagine the film without him.”
– Roger Greenspun, The New York Times
