The Screen Presents:
New York Film Critics Series: American Hustle, Hosted by Peter Travers
Dec. 10, 7 p.m., the New York Critic Series premieres David O. Russell’s American Hustle, starring Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner and Jennifer Lawrence with a simulcast Q/A preceding the screening. Russell’s fictional film is set in the alluring world of one of the most stunning scandals to rock our nation; American Hustle tells the story of brilliant con man Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale), who along with his equally cunning and seductive British partner Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams) is forced to work for a wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper). Like David O. Russell’s previous films, American Hustle defies genre, hinging on raw emotion, and life and death stakes. This one-time event includes behind-the-scene stories and highlights from the director himself. Be the first to experience live, National, HD broadcasts of New York Film Critics Series. One night only! Tuesday, Dec. 10 7:00 p.m. Tickets on sale now.
The Punk Singer, A Tale of Kathleen Hanna and the Riot Grrrl Movement
Awarded the Women In Cinema Award from Seattle Film Festival 2013, Sini Anderson’s documentary highlights Kathleen Hanna, lead singer of punk band Bikini Kill and dance punk trio Le Tigre, who rose to national attention as the reluctant but never shy advocate of the riot grrrl movement. As a famous outspoken feminist icon, Hanna’s critics wished she would just shut-up, while her fans hoped she never would. So in 2005, when Hanna stopped shouting, many wondered why. Through 20 years of archival footage and intimate interviews with Hanna, The Punk Singer takes viewers on a fascinating tour of contemporary music and offers a never-before-seen view into the life of this fearless leader. Tom Huddleston of Time Out says Kathleen Hanna is “a woman who has been through hell and come out kicking, and the result is as much a celebration as it is a documentary.” Opens this Friday.
