Bright Lights: Advanced Screening- Winter's Tale
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Bright Family Screening Room
New York City is subsumed in arctic winds, dark nights, and white lights, its life unfolds, for it is an extraordinary hive of the imagination, the greatest house ever built, and nothing exists that can check its vitality. One night in winter, Peter Lake, orphan and master-mechanic, attempts to rob a fortress-like mansion on the Upper West Side. Though he thinks the house is empty, the daughter of the house is home. Thus begins the love between Peter, a middle-aged Irish burglar, and Beverly Penn, a young girl, who is dying.
The film stars Colin Farrell Total Recall, Jessica Brown Findlay (TV's Downton Abbey), and Oscar® winners Jennifer Connelly (A Beautiful Mind), William Hurt (Kiss of the Spider Woman), Eva Marie Saint (On the Waterfront) and Russell Crowe (Gladiator). The film marks the directorial debut of Academy Award®-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind), who also wrote the screenplay, based on the acclaimed novel by Mark Helprin.
