Description

Last Summer, 1969, Warner Bros., 95 min. Dir. Frank Perry.

Bruce Davison, Barbara Hershey and Catherine Burns star in this aggressively unsentimental coming of age story. Director Frank Perry charts the behavior (and misbehavior) of a group of teens on Fire Island whose tastes for sex, drugs, and rock and roll devolve into more sinister interests as the summer progresses. Ultimately the characters’ loss of innocence mirrors that of America in the decade during which the film was made and takes place. [16mm]

Discussion following with Barbara Hershey, moderated by Larry Karaszewski.
