30th Anniversary Presentation

Broadway Danny Rose

Directed by Woody Allen

US | 84 minutes | 1984

In one of his finest romantic comedies, Woody Allen plays a no-hope theatrical agent, Danny Rose (his clients include balloon twisters, wine-glass players, and bird trainers), who finally has a shot at getting somewhere when he signs washed-up lounge singer, Lou Canova (Nick Apollo Forte). Canova has a complicated love life, juggling both a wife and a Mafia widow girlfriend (Mia Farrow), so he asks Danny to act as a beard for him during a concert which could lead to his big break. What follows is a picaresque adventure that is immediately charming and, in the end, unexpectedly moving. Shown in a newly restored 35mm print.

Hosted by acclaimed director Whit Stillman (Metropolitan, Barcelona, Last Days of Disco).
