Jewels in the Wasteland

There are no current or future screenings planned for this film.

Please note: Richard Linklater will not attend this screening due to a travel commitment. He will provide a video introduction and the post-film discussion will take place with author, professor and producer John Pierson.

Mike Leigh’s humane-but-cutting comedy about a London family stretched across the social class divide in Thatcher-era England was achieved through the director’s collaborative, improvisational working style with his cast of top-notch British actors.

Continue the post-screening conversation at our Late Happy Hour: $2 off draft beer and wine from 8:30 PM – close!
