VENUE - GOMA (Gallery of Modern Art), Stanley Place, Brisbane

SYNOPSIS - "One of the great tragedies of film history in terms of lost footage, Orson Welles’ ‘compromised’ adaptation of Booth Tarkington’s novel still stands as one of the towering achievements of modern cinema. The film chronicles the decline of the American Dream among members of an upper-class Midwestern family. While severely altered by the studio (RKO removed a third of Welles’ first cut, added a happy ending and destroyed the original material), the film’s powerful performances and visual dynamism remain." -Harvard Film Archive

    A very interesting film - a bit disjointed but I guess not surprising if more than an hour of filming was cut from it! Would like to read the book now. Lovely company with a relaxing cuppa by the river afterwards.

    Just FYI, I'll think you'll find that this movie is actually ticketed. :)
