A CHILD IS WAITING
Friday, August 9
(1963, John Cassavetes) In a state institution for emotionally disturbed children, new teacher Judy Garland challenges the methods of boss Burt Lancaster, particularly in the case of a boy abandoned by mother Gena Rowland. Cassavetes’ first studio film. DCP. Approx. 102 min.
“Flawed but fascinating… As ever, Cassavetes elicits magnificent performances from his cast, making especially fine use of Garland's tremulous emotionalism.”
– Geoff Andrew, Time Out (London)
“Poignant, provocative, revealing.”
