Rich and Famous
George Cukor, 1981
USA | Format: 35mm | 117 minutes

Introduction by star Candice Bergen at the 6:30pm screening!

Cukor’s final film follows two college friends through 20 years of marriage, success, jealousy, frustration, falling outs, and reconciliations. Liz (Jacqueline Bisset) and Merry (Candice Bergen) become fast friends in their first year of college, then go their separate ways—one a celebrated author, the other a Malibu housewife with dreams of literary stardom. Eventually the tables are turned, then turned again, and soon everything is turning: time, fortune, happiness, friendship. Rich and Famous is a wistful and ultimately bitter swan song for Cukor’s remarkable half-century career, anchored by two performances that this famed director of actors could be proud to go out on. With Meg Ryan in her first acting role as Bergen’s teenage daughter.
