50th Anniversary

An upwardly mobile New York Jew (Charles Grodin) marries within the faith, only to meet the shiksa of his dreams (Cybill Shepherd) on his Miami honeymoon. This film wouldn't have been possible without director Elaine May's daughter (Jeannie Berlin) as the gauche, grating and pitiful Lila, thrown over by her snake of a husband, yet somehow creating humor from the pathos. Few directors would dare to cast their own child in such a role, and few actresses could bring so much life to a character who embodies bad luck. Berlin received an Oscar® nomination for her performance, as did Eddie Albert in the role of Shepherd's patrician Minnesotan father. DIR Elaine May; SCR Neil Simon, from the story "A Change of Plan" by Bruce Jay Friedman; PROD Edgar J. Scherick. U.S., 1972, color, 106 min. RATED PG

Although the film begins at 7:00pm, we'll meet outside AFI/Silver near the box office so we can all get tickets together. Senior tickets $11.00.
