The Hamptons International Film Festival and Guild Hall present OLIVER TWIST hosted by Alec Baldwin

Saturday, February 25. 7:30 p.m. 
Guild Hall, 158 Main Street, EastHampton, NY. 11937.

Conversation to follow with Jon Robin Baitz. Legendary filmmaker David Lean’s (Lawrence of Arabia, Dr. Zhivago) second adaptation of a Charles Dickens novel is a masterpiece of cinema, featuring a searing performance by Robert Newton as criminal Bill Sikes. The stunningly expressionistic cinematography by Guy Green places the viewer in a dark and furtive 19th century England but one where hope still exists. Acclaimed writer Jon Robin Baitz (creator of ABC’s Brothers & Sisters and the play Other Desert Cities, which is currently on Broadway) will join host Alec Baldwin following the screening for a discussion of literary adaptations. “Lean has an affinity for all aspects of what might be required to bring Dickens’ characters to the screen. The casting, cinematography by Guy Green and editing by Jack Harris are superb,” says host Alec Balwin, who curated the film with David Nugent of Hamptons International Film Festival. $17/15 members. Tickets online at GuildHall.org or at Box Office 3 hours prior to curtain; theatermania.com; or 1.866.811.4111.
