Bernstein 100th!

(1954) dir Elia Kazan w/Marlon Brando, Karl Malden, Eva Marie Saint, Lee J. Cobb, Rod Steiger [108 min; DCP]
Join us in celebrating the 100th birthday of Lawrence, MA native Leonard Bernstein! In this searing drama, the only film for which Bernstein expressly composed a score, Brando puts in one of his most iconic performances as a dock worker who puts his life on the line to stand up to a corrupt union boss.

“Under Elia Kazan’s direction, Marlon Brando puts on a spectacular show, giving a fascinating, multi-faceted performance.” – Variety

“Indisputably one of the great American films, its power undiminished.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

“It is still possible to feel the power of the film and of Brando and Kazan, who changed American movie acting forever.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
