Still image from the film Petulia
Richard Lester took a break from directing British comedies (A Hard Day’s Night) to helm this visually inventive and well-acted drama about two broken socialites who encounter each other at decisive moments in their lives. Julie Christie is at her very best playing the titular lead, as she and George C. Scott’s older divorcee character explore their profound dissatisfaction with domestic “contentment.” Petulia is one of New Hollywood’s most striking and overlooked entries. (16mm presentation)
