ABOUT THE FILMS

 

THE INDIAN RUNNER, 1991, Park Circus/MGM, 125 min, USA, Dir: Sean Penn

Inspired by the Bruce Springsteen song “Highway Patrolman,” Sean Penn’s auspicious directorial debut focuses on the Cain-and-Abel dynamic between a small-town lawman (David Morse) and a Vietnam-vet (Viggo Mortensen). Moving but never sentimental, it features stand-out performances by Charles Bronson, Sandy Dennis, Dennis Hopper, Patricia Arquette and Valeria Golino.

Format: 35mm


INTO THE WILD, 2007, Paramount, 148 min. Dir. Sean Penn

Christopher McCandless (Emile Hirsch), son of erudite parents (Marcia Gay Harden, William Hurt), graduates from Emory University as a top student and athlete. However, here his path diverges from the status quo as he rids himself of his possessions and sets out on a journey into the Alaskan wilderness. Adapted from Jon Krakauer’s non-fiction book, Sean Penn’s INTO THE WILD earned two Oscar nominations.

Format: DCP
