Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity) made his first international splash with this gorgeously visual, narratively daring, and sexually frank tale of two 17-year-old friends (Diego Luna and Gael Garcia Bernal in star-making performances) who meet a beautiful older woman (Maribel Verdu) and convince her to join them on a summer road trip through Mexico.
Vivien Leigh and Marlon Brando provide “two of the greatest performances ever put on film” (Pauline Kael) in Elia Kazan’s groundbreaking film adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ play, which earned twelve Oscar® nominations and four wins, including Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress (Kim Hunter), and Best Supporting Actor (Karl Malden).
Of all the Coen Brothers films that have been featured at the Egyptian over the years (which is almost all of them), their biggest opening week came with this strikingly original, hilariously funny, and Homer-inspired musical journey through the Depression-era South.
Joel and Ethan Coen burst onto cinema screens with this critically acclaimed blend of chilling suspense and offbeat humor inspired by classic film noir. A word-of-mouth hit, Blood Simple premiered at SIFF in 1984 and became one of the Egyptian’s all-time biggest hit films.
