The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter
Friday, May 1
NC Museum of Art
(1968) Directed by Robert Ellis Miller. Alan Arkin, Sondra Locke, Stacy Keach. 123 min.
A deaf-mute rents a room in the home of a sensitive teenage girl, and through her becomes enmeshed in a community of damaged souls, including an alcoholic and a black doctor struggling both with racism and estrangement from his daughter. Arkin and Locke (in her film debut, with her days as Clint Eastwood’s heroine still in her future) both received Oscar nominations.
Novelist Jill Mc Corkle (July 7th, Carolina Moon) will introduce this moving, and almost forgotten adaptation of Carson McCullers’s novel.
All films are screened in the Museum Auditorium on Fridays at 8 p.m.
Tickets are available through the Museum Box Office at (919) 715-5923 or on-line.
