06-01-2019 12:00:00 06-01-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York Taking Off | 6:30 SUMMER OF LOVE RUNAWAYS BOOK RELEASE SCREENING! Written by Miloš Forman, John Guare, Jean-Claude Carrière, and John Klein. With Buck Henry, Lynn Carlin, Linnea Heacock, Georgia Engel, Tony Harvey, Audra Lindley, Paul Benedict, and Vincent Schiavelli. The Summer of Love was not all daisies. Each week hundreds of distraught parents from across the country filed missing persons reports. Teens were dropping out of society and running away in record numbers to San Francisco's Haight Ashbury and New York's East Village. Enter Miloš Forman, fresh from Czechoslovakia. TAKING OFF, his first film in America, is a strange and wonderful comedy about a 15-year-old girl who doesn't come home one day. Her father, played by the great Buck Henry, goes to the East Village to search for her and – one thing leading to another – finds himself confronting such 1960s countercultural spectacles as a room full of uptight parents learning to smoke marijuana, a suburban game of strip poker, a cameo by a young folk-singing Kathy Bates (credited as Bobo Bates), appearances by Carly Simon and Ike & Tina Turner, and many more surprises. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=345007 Anthology Film Archives Anthology Film Archives
