Director Hal Hartley is scheduled to be present.

In Hal Hartley's first feature and one of his most-beloved comedies, a beautiful college bound girl (Adrienne Shelly) disturbingly preoccupied with the threat of nuclear destruction, falls in love with a handsome ex-con who is rumored to have murdered the father of his high-school sweetheart. A warmhearted satire about idealistic young love, capitalist moralizing in the home, and the need for work one loves. The film also stars Edie Falco, Robert John Burke, and Josh Hutton (who would appear in a number of Hartley's later films). (2K DCP presentation)
