For our week 5 screening, on Wednesday night we’ll be experiencing Gus Van Sant’s 1991 independent American adventure film inspired by Shakespeare’s Henriad plays: My Own Private Idaho! 🛣️🏍️👑
Played by River Phoenix and Keanu Reeves respectively, the film follows two best friends, Mike Waters, a gay hustler, and Scott Favor, the rebellious son of a mayor, as they embark on a journey of self-discovery that takes them from Portland, Oregon to Mike’s hometown in Idaho, and then to Rome in search of Mike’s mother.
A landmark of queer cinema, to watch this one with us, just make your way to https://cytu.be/r/Film_Society on the night! You can text chat while watching or enjoy the movie full screen. Once it’s done, we’ll chat more on Zoom. 🙂
