Nat Faxon & Jim Rash In Person!
DAZED AND CONFUSED / STAND BY ME
Nat Faxon and Jim Rash - Oscar-winning writers of THE DESCENDANTS as well as writer-director-actors of the upcoming THE WAY, WAY BACK - introduce a program of their favorite summer movies.
DAZED AND CONFUSED
1993, Gramercy Pictures, 102 min, USA, Dir: Richard Linklater

The last day of class at a Texas high school in 1976 brings together jocks, nerds and stoners in this cult teen comedy set to a classic rock soundtrack. Jason London, Ben Affleck, Milla Jovovich and Renée Zellweger are among the students gearing up for the summer; Matthew McConaughey is unforgettable as the older guy who still parties with the kids.


STAND BY ME
1986, Sony Repertory, 89 min, Dir: Rob Reiner

One of the most classic and quotable coming-of-age films ever made, Rob Reiner's adaptation of Stephen King's "The Body" is at once hilarious and heartbreaking, and a spot-on time capsule of small-town America in the 1950s. Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman and Jerry O'Connell star as friends on the precipice of junior high school, enjoying a summer of small-fry hijinks. When they go looking for the body of a boy presumed dead from a train accident, they must come to terms with the difficult changes the future holds.


Screening formats: 35mm (DAZED AND CONFUSED) and DCP (STAND BY ME)
