Sweet Smell of Success

Friday 23rd February, 8pm


High Contrast Cinema returns with a Alexander Mackendrick’s slick, seedy masterpiece Sweet Smell Of Success. Featuring Hollywood heavyweights Burt Lancaster and Tony Curtis, the film was initially poorly received as audiences baulked at seeing two beloved idols play such flagrantly amoral characters. The film’s stature improved greatly from there as it was recognised how skilfully it captured the rampant corruption lurking within the streets of New York City during the twilight hours.

Sweet Smell Of Success is rated PG with ‘some scenes that may be unsuitable for young children’.

Sunset Boulevard

Friday 5th April, 8pm


Another of Billy Wilder's most celebrated masterpieces, Sunset Boulevard is widely considered to be one of the greatest films of all time. It stars William Holden as a struggling screenwriter caught in a silent film star's web of delusion. Wilder cast Gloria Swanson, one of the biggest stars of the 1920s, in perhaps her greatest role as Norma Desmond, which resulted in her third Academy Award nomination for Best Actress. By turns a film noir, a black comedy and a Hollywood satire, its influence, reputation and cultural significance hasn't diminished over the past seven decades. 
Rated PG for ‘suicide references, mild violence, language and sex references’.
