Catch The Man From Snowy River For Free This Weekend At The International Museum Of Art
Now that the Plaza Classic Film Festival has wrapped up, the Sunset Film Society will continue it's free classic movie screenings at the International Museum of Art on Saturday afternoons.
This weekend, the Society will screen an Australian film, The Man From Snowy River. It was made in 1982 and stars Kirk Douglas plays a dual role in the movie as twin brothers in the middle of a decades old feud and who haven't spoken to each other for all that time. One of the brothers played by Douglas is the father of a teen boy who comes to live on his farm and in the other role, Douglas plays the father of a girl the teen has fallen in love with and hopes to marry.
The brother's feud heats up again when Jim is accused of losing a prize stallion on the farm. He and the girl he loves have to make it through that storm, which, spoiler alert, they do.
This film is so beautiful and so unflashy and un-80s. It was made during the time when anything Australian was hot, but it really is a classic film in that it has held up because it is such a well-made film with a beautiful story.
Check out the film at that International Museum of Art on Saturday, August 25, at 2:00 p.m. Dollar concessions of soft drinks, popcorn, and candy are available, and the film is free. This is a great family-friendly way to pass a Saturday afternoon.
