*Q&A w/ Heckerling &
Alicia Silverstone
“Lena Dunham Selects”
6:50 at BAM

“This toothy romp with tongue-in-cheek B-movie special effects follows literal BFFs and vampire gal pals Goody and Stacy after having partied their way through several generations of New York nightlife. Heckerling’s sharply written comedy is a satirical yet nostalgic ode to an NYC of yore, monochrome silents, cinema studies, and even the dusty obsolescence of vampires themselves. Silverstone brings an unexpected poignancy to her role as a 19th-century girl struggling to fit in to 21st-century life with all its foibles.”
