SÉANCE ON A WET AFTERNOON
Tuesday, April 4
(1964, Brian Forbes) Ambitious-for-the-big-time psychic Kim Stanley, with slavishly-devoted hubby Richard Attenborough along for the ride, goes to any lengths – including kidnapping – to prove she’s for real. Method maven Stanley was Oscar-nominated and won top acting honors from the New York Film Critics. 35mm. Approx. 114 mins.
“Brilliant acting, directing, in this must-see-film.”
– Leonard Maltin
“[Kim Stanley’s] performance is utterly superb, and so too is Attenborough’s: with his leather crash helmet, goggles and clapped-out motor-bike, he looks like a reject Hell’s Angel from Orphée.”
– Adrian Turner, Time Out (London)
