Thursday, November 2: The Love Witch
Anna Biller | Comedy/Horror | 120 minutes | USA, 2016
Film ratings: W, F
Elaine, a beautiful young witch, is determined to find a man to love her. In her gothic Victorian apartment, she makes spells and potions and then picks up men and seduces them. However, her spells work too well, leaving her with a string of hapless victims. When she finally meets the man of her dreams, her desperation to be loved will drive her to the brink of insanity and murder. With a visual style that pays tribute to Technicolor thrillers of the ’60s, The Love Witch explores female fantasy and the repercussions of pathological narcissism. A discussion with director Anna Biller via Skype will follow the screening.
All screenings start at 7:00 pm and take place at Emerson’s Paramount Center Bright Family Screening Room, located at 559 Washington Street, Boston. Seating is first come, first served. There is no advance registration.
