ALAN RICKMAN REMEMBERED
Double Feature! Screenwriter Steven De Souza In Person!
DIE HARD / ROBIN HOOD: PRINCE OF THIEVES
Discussion between films with DIE HARD screenwriter Steven De Souza, moderated by Duvien Ho of Dammaged Goods.
DIE HARD
1988, 20th Century Fox, 131 min, Dir: John McTiernan

Bruce Willis plays wisecracking cop John McClane, an endearing Everyman who becomes an unlikely hero when a group of professional thieves takes his wife’s office building hostage at Christmastime. One of the most purely entertaining movies ever made, this fast, funny and visually elegant thriller set the template for the Hollywood action flicks that followed it and made Willis a movie star.


35 mm!

ROBIN HOOD: PRINCE OF THIEVES
1991, Morgan Creek, 143 min, Dir: Kevin Reynolds

This rousing take on the classic folk tale stars Kevin Costner as Robin of Locksley, who with his band of Merry Men robs from the rich and gives to the poor in 13th-century England. Alan Rickman turned down the part of the Sheriff of Nottingham twice before being promised free reign, which he used to deliciously villainous effect, winning a Best Supporting Actor BAFTA Award. Along with an inescapable theme song (Bryan Adams’ “(Everything I Do) I Do It for You”), this box office hit features fine performances by Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio and Morgan Freeman.


Screening formats: DCP (DIE HARD), 35mm (ROBIN HOOD: PRINCE OF THIEVES)
