St. Tropez lovers Alain Delon and Romy Schneider are visited by Schneider’s former flame, Maurice Ronet, and daughter Jane Birkin. Sparks fly and one of them ends up dead. Now the three survivors must get their stories straight before the police arrive in this seductive psychological thriller from filmmaker Jacques Deray. In French with English subtitles.

FORMAT: 4K DCP Restoration


THE SWIMMER, 1968, Sony Repertory, 94 min, Dir: Frank Perry

Two of the most neglected figures of the New Hollywood generation, director Frank Perry adn screenwriter Eleanor Perry made several razor-sharp dissections of modern morality between 1962 and 1975. Based on John Cheever’s acclaimed novel, THE SWIMMER follows middle-aged Burt Lancaster on a metaphoric journey swimming from backyard pool to backyard pool in his upscale suburban neighborhood, headed toward a “home” that may no longer exist.
