Tilda Swinton in Orlando

25th Anniversary!

Double Feature with CARAVAGGIO (9:30)

(1992) dir Sally Potter w/Tilda Swinton, Billy Zane, Charlotte Valandrey, John Wood, Heathcoate Williams, Jimmy Somerville, Quentin Crisp [94 min; 35mm]
A British noble is gifted an estate by a dying Queen Elizabeth I and obeys her command to “not fade” by simply living forever… though complications arise when he mysteriously becomes a she around the 200-year mark. A near-perfect role for the alluringly androgynous Swinton, ORLANDO is a landmark British film and not to be missed on the big screen.

“A silly and serious work of art that isn’t afraid to entertain.” – Dan Kois, Slate

“It’s a critical work — in the sense that it comments wryly on such things as representations of English history, sexuality/androgyny and class — but made in the spirit of a love poem to both Woolf and the England that made us.” – Wally Hammond, Time Out

“This ravishing and witty spectacle invades the mind through eyes that are dazzled without ever being anesthetized.” – Vincent Canby, New York Times
