Shirley (POSTPONED)

It is possible the Movie Night online screening + Q&A will be rescheduled for as soon as next weekend, but we will know more shortly and alert you as soon as we do.

The mission of the Movie Night platform is to cultivate a communal experience through cinema. Hosting the event this Saturday does not feel appropriate or supportive of the activism happening across the country.

“A thrillingly perverse example of what happens when the shackles of biopic formula are cast aside.” — Benjamin Lee, Guardian

ABOUT THE FILM

Renowned horror writer Shirley Jackson is on the precipice of writing her masterpiece when the arrival of newlyweds upends her meticulous routine and heightens tensions in her already tempestuous relationship with her philandering husband. The middle-aged couple, prone to ruthless barbs and copious afternoon cocktails, begins to toy mercilessly with the naïve young couple at their door.
