Choose Me Directed by: Alan Rudolph Producers: Carolyn Pfeiffer, David Blocker Exec. Producer: Shep Gordon, Chris Blackwell TRT: 106 min. (USA)
Enjoy a screening of the audaciously intriguing 1984 film "Choose Me", followed by a conversation with special guest actress Rae Dawn Chong on the making of the film.
Auteur director Alan Rudolph (Afterglow) writes and directs this "intriguing, completely spontaneous" (Roger Ebert) and film-noirish tale of romantic entanglements set in hedonistic mid-1980s Los Angeles. An all-star ensemble cast, including Oscar nominees* Lesley Ann Warren (Victor/Victoria) and Genevieve Bujold (Anne of the Thousand Days) dances in and out of love with strangers while searching for the true meaning of life. Anne Love (Bujold) is a successful on-air relationship counselor. Her popular show "The Love Line" has everyone in L.A. listening especially her new roommate, Eve (Warren), who calls in for advice and has no idea she's talking to Anne! But when a strange drifter (Keith Carradine, Wild Bill) enters their lives, things take a sudden, confusing and tumultuous turn in the heart department, forcing everyone to take a closer look at what they really want out of relationships, and more importantly just who they really are.
