TEA AND SYMPATHY
Minnelli | 1956 | US | 122min
“The Complete Vincente Minnelli”
*Intro by David Gerstner
4:30, 7:00*, 9:30 at BAM

“Usually seen as a ‘minor’ film by Minnelli, it is among his masterpieces, in part because of his genius in negotiating the roadblocks in front of him with such aplomb, but most centrally because of the courage it took for this bisexual artist to produce such an accomplished work on this hot-button topic in mid-1950s America, a truly awful era. This is a film that challenges virtually every assumption of American life.”
Christopher Sharett, Film International [Read More]
