The Big Chill
Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Lawrence Kasdan. 1983, 105 mins. 35mm. With William Hurt, Glenn Close, Kevin Kline, Tom Berenger, Jeff Goldblum, Mary Kay Place, Meg Tilly, Jobeth Williams. A funeral for Alex, a young man who commits suicide, leads to an eventful weekend retreat for his dearest friends. Solemnity engenders revelations about romantic entanglements, friendship fractures breaking wide open, and more in this definitive baby boomer touchstone film that unfolds against a backdrop of 1960s and 1970s soul and pop hits. Glenn Close got her second Oscar nomination as the empathetic and remarkably enlightened Sarah Cooper, a young wife with a secret connection to the deceased.
