SYNOPSIS

A New Leaf will screen from an imported 35mm print.

‘The great Elaine May wrote, directs, and stars in one of the funniest—and darkest—comedies of the 1970s. She’s the impossibly nerdy, botanist-heiress who becomes the mark of Walter Matthau’s fortune-hunting fallen aristocrat who sees marriage and murder as his ticket out of bankruptcy. What plays out is both deliciously deadpan and—thanks largely to May’s endearing performance—oddly touching.’ Brooklyn Academy of Music
