We’ve teamed yup with MUBI to bring you a series of screenings and panel discussions, held at the Little White Lies screening room. Each event will coincide with the special release of a film on MUBI for 30 days.
In LWLies 63 we put a special focus on swansong movies – 50 works from a range of directors of differing styles, eras and locales. For this event, we’re pairing up – possibly for the first time ever? – John Hughes 1991 feature, Curly Sue, and FW Murnau’s silent classic, Tabu, from 1931.
Curly Sue is the final film from “Brat Pack” godhead, John Hughes, who gave us such teen angst classics as The Breakfast Club and Ferris Bueller’ Day Off. It stars Jim Belushi as a transient, yomping from city to city in the company of his incorrigible adopted daughter, played by Alisan Porter. We’re screening this strange parting shot which will be followed by a discussion on what makes a great final film.
