Please Baby Please – Thursday, February 9th

Co-presented with the Boston Underground Film Festival, Wicked Queer and the Boston Women’s Film Festival

Directed by Amanda Kramer, drama/ musical, English, USA,  95 minutes, 2022.

Big issues, packaged in flamboyantly witty dialogue, are addressed amidst hyper-stylized decors with a theatrical 1950s feel (think a rather dark, campy twist on West Side Story (1961) as directed by John Waters). How should one be a ‘real’ man or woman? And, what does the institution of marriage have to do with it? Suze and Arthur are the ideal Lower East Side bohemian couple. He earns a modest living as a clarinetist, she is a stylish housewife, dutifully doing the washing up. One evening, they witness a murder, committed by a rough gang of greasers in leather jackets, on the sidewalk in front of their house. This introduction to the intimidating Young Gents arouses previously unsuspected emotions and feelings of sexuality in both Arthur and Suze. Q&A with director Amanda Kramer ‘02 to follow. W, F, LGBTQ, EC

SCREENINGS WILL BE HELD ON THURS., FEBRUARY 9TH AT 7PM IN THE BRIGHT FAMILY SCREENING ROOM. DOORS OPEN AT 6:30PM.

TICKETS NO LONGER REQUIRED.
