Gena Rowlands On A WOMAN UNDER THE INFLUENCE Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-07-17 at 12.28.04 AMRowlands answers my question about working with kids. (Image by Matthew Rettenmund)

I was privileged to attend a screening of A Woman Under the Influence (1974) at Metrograph, NYC's fantastic new Lower East Side theater that shows classics and quirky non-classics, after which star Gena Rowlands appeared to answer questions about her greatest role.

Rowlands, 86, won a Golden Globe and was nominated for an Oscar for her incredible performance in the film, in which she plays a mentally unstable wife and mother whose husband (Peter Falk) is touchingly in love with her quirks and disturbingly unprepared to handle them. The cast is rounded out by non-actors (her real mom, who lived to be 95, played her character's hapless mother in the film) who somehow hold their own against Rowlands' tour-de-force portrayal.

The crowd was young, period. I felt like the missing link between Gena's generation and the one seated around me. A nearby restaurant was so hipster it was a self-parody, offering organic eats and featuring a chef in a Bernie T-shirt. When I ordered a Diet Coke, the pale young bearded fellow acting as my server informed me sweetly that he didn't have soft drinks but had a variety of homemade beverages. It was a safe space for your tummy.

Kidding aside, with all the negative impressions of millennials, it was nice to encounter a slew of them with a healthy appreciation for something that came before. The kid next to me informed me he hadn't seen the film in five years, suggesting a rich arthouse catalogue bubbling in his head, and the questions people asked were, to a one, intelligent and unembarrassing. I've never been to a Q&A like this at which at least one or two mortifyingly inappropriate, self-involved, non-question questions aren't asked.

Check out Metrograph.

I captured the Q&A, an edited version of which appears after the jump. In it, Rowlands speaks about the film—which she's only ever seen one time—as well as about her late husband John Cassavettes's artistic approach. My question involved her incredible bond with her character's kids in the film, which also led her to talk a bit about her second most famous role, in Gloria (1980) ...

Big Protest In NYC Over GOP's Anti-LGBTQ/Pro-Gun Platform Comments (0)

From a press release:

Queer Nation, Gays Against Guns, and other allies and LGBTQ groups, will stage a massive demonstration in front of Trump Tower, 725 Fifth Avenue (between 56th and 57th Streets) on Monday, July 18, at 5:00 PM EDT. The protest — “Stop the Hate, Stop the Guns” — takes place on the first night of the Republican convention and targets the Republican Party and Donald Trump, its presumptive nominee.
As the convention opens in Cleveland, Queer Nation, gun control and LGBTQ activists and allies will gather in New York to protest the anti-LGBTQ positions and actions of Republican lawmakers — some taken since the June 12th slaying of 49 people during Latin Night at Pulse, an LGBTQ nightclub in Orlando.
“The Republican Party, with its horrendous anti-LGBT and racist rhetoric, bears ultimate responsibility for the killings in Orlando,” said Alan Klein, a member of Queer Nation. “The GOP’s blind allegiance to the NRA is responsible for the unrelenting epidemic of gun violence in America — as well as for the gun culture that contributes to police killings of people of color.”

I've been hearing Gays Against Guns is exceedingly well-organized. They've hit the ground running.

From a press release:

In this new comedy from the writers of THE HANGOVER, Amy has a seemingly perfect life - a great marriage, over-achieving kids, beautiful home and a career. However she's over-worked, over-committed and exhausted to the point that she's about to snap. Fed up, she joins forces with two other over-stressed moms on a quest to liberate themselves from conventional responsibilities—going on a wild, un-mom-like binge of long overdue freedom, fun and self-indulgence—putting them on a collision course with PTA Queen Bee Gwendolyn and her clique of devoted perfect moms.

BOYS Culture: New Play Touches On Orlando, Grindr, AIDS, The Closet & More Comments (0)

I was excited to receive word of the new play Boys of a Certain Age, which is being staged at The Wild Project (195 E. Third Ave. NYC) this month. The play follows a group of gay Jewish men spending a weekend together, and is set on the day it opens, meaning it covers not only recent developments like Grindr and the 2016 election, but will also likely be the first play to touch on the mass shooting in Orlando.

From a press release:

ELR Productions is proud to present the world premiere of Boys of a Certain Age from the acclaimed team of playwright Dan Fingerman and director Boys_Image2Dan Dinero. This moving play addresses intergenerational gay relationships and issues facing the LGBT community and is the first collaboration between Fingerman and Dinero since the widely praised 2011 production The Austerity of Hope. The show will run at The Wild Project, at 195 East 3rd St, on the Lower East Side of Manhattan from June 16 to 19.

Ira and Larry were Hebrew school classmates who took different paths in life. Ira came out and moved to the city; Larry got married, had a family and came out later in life. Now they're spending one memorable weekend together with Larry's son Bryan, Ira's nephew Christopher and a whole lot of gay history.

I know and am familiar with the work of Marc Sinoway (Hunting Season), and the rest of the cast is made up of Brian Gligor, R. Scott Williams and Joseph J. Menino.

More info here!

Check it out July 16 @ 2 p.m., July 17 @ 7 p.m. and/or July 19 @ 6:30 p.m. Runs 90 minutes with no intermission.
