The Remains of the Day Screening & Talk-Back
[Collaboration with the Sie FilmCenter]
Wednesday, March 11, 7:00 PM
@Sie FilmCenter, 2510 E. Colfax Avenue
This screening is a collaboration with Lighthouse Writers Workshop, in conjunction with their upcoming Writer’s Studio with Kazuo Ishiguro. Lighthouse Writers Workshop is the largest nonprofit literary community in Colorado and the Mountain West. A talk-back with Lighthouse instructor Terry Dodd will immediately follow the screening.
Dutiful butler Stevens (Anthony Hopkins) dedicates himself wholly to tending Lord Darlington's (James Fox) house, turning a blind eye to Darlington's Nazi sympathies. When housekeeper Miss Kenton (Emma Thompson) tries to coax Stevens out of his staid shell, his reluctance may cost him dearly. He finally seeks out Miss Kenton later in life, but is it too late? This Merchant-Ivory period drama was nominated for eight Oscars, including Best Picture.
