Woody Allen received Academy Award nominations for writing and directing this witty and gorgeously crafted theatrical comedy, which also brought costume designer Jeffrey Kurland a nomination for his authentic creations. John Cusack plays a struggling playwright in 1920s New York who must contend with a tempestuous diva (Dianne Wiest, in her second Oscar-winning performance in a Woody Allen film), the gangster-producer’s spectacularly untalented girlfriend and her bodyguard (Jennifer Tilly and Chazz Palminteri, both Oscar-nominated). The colorful supporting cast includes Jim Broadbent, Harvey Fierstein, Mary-Louise Parker, Tracey Ullman and Jack Warden, and the end result is one of Allen’s most visually enchanting and laugh-out-loud funny films.
1994, 98 minutes, color, 35mm | Directed by Woody Allen; written by Allen and Douglas McGrath; with Jim Broadbent, John Cusack, Harvey Fierstein, Chazz Palminteri, Mary-Louise Parker, Rob Reiner, Jennifer Tilly, Tracey Ullman, Joe Viterelli, Jack Warden, Dianne Wiest.
Hannah and Her Sisters
Saturday, November 22 | 7:30 p.m.
One of Woody Allen's greatest critical successes, this ensemble comedy-drama takes a look at love, family and infidelity among Manhattan intellectuals, and earned him his second Original Screenplay Oscar. Housewife Mia Farrow, bohemian Barbara Hershey and an Oscar-winning, ne’er-do-well Dianne Wiest are daughters of an Upper West Side couple (screen vets Maureen O’Sullivan and Lloyd Nolan, in his final film role) whose fates intertwine with those of the men in their lives: tormented painter Max von Sydow, hypochondriac television producer Woody Allen and lovestruck accountant Michael Caine in the first of his Oscar-winning performances. A droll snapshot of high-‘80s New York life – with blink-and-you-miss-them cameos by Julia-Louis Dreyfus, John Turturro and Lewis Black – Hannah and Her Sisters boasts stylish contemporary costumes by Jeffrey Kurland.
1986, 106 minutes, color, 35mm | Written and directed by Woody Allen; with Woody Allen, Michael Caine, Mia Farrow, Carrie Fisher, Barbara Hershey, Lloyd Nolan, Maureen O’Sullivan, Daniel Stern, Max von Sydow, Dianne Wiest.
