Join MFA Film for a screening of Tim Hunter's «River's Edge» (1986). Dennis Hopper, Keanu Reeves, and Crispin Glover star in this strange tale of apathy and alienation in small-town America. Tensions arise in a group of close-knit teenagers after one of them commits a senseless murder. With a chilling lack of emotion, the friends deliberate on whether to cover up the crime or betray one of their own.
The screening is part of «On the Fringe: American Cult Films of the 1980s» at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, highlighting wildly creative independent films from the 1980s and early '90s that opened viewers' minds to new ideas: supernatural phenomena, otherworldly creatures and the countercultures thriving on the fringes of American society. The yearlong series began in January and jumps forward a year each month before concluding in December with a film from 1991. Before the show, enjoy trailers and commercials from the year the film was made!
The MFA's Film Program is recognized as one of the country's leading independent exhibitors of film, presenting more than 500 screenings of independent, foreign and classic films every year.
MFA members can get free tickets to every film in the yearlong series (plus hundreds of other screenings) by joining Friends of Film, a group that connects film lovers with other cinephiles through discussions and events: bit.ly/2hYLBB0
