SYNOPSIS

Raising Arizona will screen from an archival 35mm print.

‘When a childless couple consisting of an ex-con (Nicolas Cage) and an ex-cop (Holly Hunter) decide to help themselves to one of another family's quintupelets, their lives spiral into chaos and disaster. Combining influences from Tex Avery cartoons to Sam Raimi horror movies to 1940s B-movies, Joel and Ethan Coen's first comedic masterpiece is one of the most purely entertaining, hilarious and quotable movies of all time. Starting from a point of delirious excess, the film leaps into dark and virtually uncharted territory to soar like a comet. Raising Arizona is a perfect pleasure.’ Drafthouse
