Home / Now Showing / PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE / SABRINA
PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE, 2002, Park Circus, 95 min, USA, Dir: Paul Thomas Anderson.
Adam Sandler gives one of the strongest, most nuanced performances of his career in his Golden Globe-nominated portrayal of Barry, the lonely, rage-filled owner of a novelty plunger company courted by shy, fellow troubled soul Lena (Emily Watson). Both beautifully romantic and tensely thrilling, PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE is a surreal fever dream following Barry and Lena’s whirlwind love story as they battle a wide array of threats to their relationship, ranging from a violent phone-sex hotline “supervisor” (Philip Seymour Hoffman) to their own temperaments. Anderson won the Best Director award at Cannes in 2002 for his highly inventive, aesthetically gorgeous portrait of innocent love contrasted against a world of corruption.
SABRINA, 1954, Paramount, 113 min, USA, Dir: Billy Wilder.
Audrey Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart, and William Holden star in Billy Wilder’s romantic comedy classic, SABRINA. Hepburn plays the daughter of a chauffeur for the wealthy Larrabee brothers (Bogart and Holden), who compete for her affection after she returns from a glamorous trip to Paris.
