New This Week: Touch, a decades-spanning Icelandic romance rated 96% Fresh!

Sunday August 18 at 7:10pm

This one-night-only screening is part of the series Summer Movie Nights, hosted by the Cinema Society of Kingston. The screening will be introduced by Queen’s Film & Media graduate student Francesca DiBona, who selected the film.

Admission is $10 (HST included).

In a dusty, underpopulated California resort town, a naive southern waif, Pinky Rose (Sissy Spacek), idolizes and befriends her fellow nurse, the would-be sophisticate and “thoroughly modern” Millie Lammoreaux (Shelley Duvall). When Millie takes Pinky in as her roommate, Pinky’s hero worship evolves into something far stranger and more sinister than either could have anticipated. Featuring brilliant performances from Spacek and Duvall, this dreamlike masterpiece from Robert Altman careens from the humorous to the chilling to the surreal, resulting in one of the most unusual and compelling films of the 1970s.
