THE PUMPKIN EATER
Wednesday, March 29
(1964, Jack Clayton) Grief becomes paralyzing for memory-laden Anne Bancroft, losing her bearings amidst upscale surroundings, while philandering screenwriter hubby Peter Finch looks on with baffled dismay. With a memorably intrusive James Mason and a babbling, dotty Maggie Smith. Screenplay by Harold Pinter. 35mm Archive print. Approx. 110 mins.
“Harold Pinter penned one of his superior scripts in this fastidious adaptation of Penelope Mortimer’s novel.”
