25th Anniversary Screening of Unforgiven at Magnolia Cinema
Digitally restored in 4K for the film’s 25th Anniversary, Unforgiven is a modern classic that “summarizes everything I feel about the Western,” actor/director Clint Eastwood told the Los Angeles Times. This American Film Institute Top 100 American Movies selection rode off with four 1992 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Director, Supporting Actor (Gene Hackman) and Editing (Joel Cox). Clint Eastwood and Morgan Freeman play retired, down-on-their-luck outlaws who pick up their guns one last time to collect a bounty offered by the vengeful prostitutes of the remote Wyoming town of Big Whiskey. Richard Harris is an ill-fated interloper, a colorful killer-for-hire called English Bob. And Oscar winner Gene Hackman, as the local sheriff, is a lawman of sly charm and chilling brutality whose brand of law enforcement ranges from unconventional to ruthless. Screenplay by David Webb Peoples (Blade Runner, Twelve Monkeys).
