FilmSoc Week 6: Sweet Smell of Success
30 August, 2016
Old Geology Lecture Theatre
Dir. Alexander Mackendrick - 1957 - USA
In this stylish, satirical film noir, JJ Hunsecker, an infamous gossip columnist, and Sidney Falco, an unscrupulous, fast-talking press agent, lock horns as Hunsecker convinces Falco to break up his sister’s romance with a jazz musician. Set in the glamorously scuzzy underworld of New York tabloid journalism, Sweet Smell of Success is a slick, cynical satire with wit to spare.
Find us on Tuesday in Old Geology Lecture Theatre. We'll have pizza from 5pm and the screening will start at about 5:15pm. We'll be heading to the Forest Lodge Hotel afterwards for post-film drinks and discussion.
This event is free for members, $5 for Access cardholders. Annual membership is $5 for Access cardholders.
