About the Event
Former fighter John Huston’s ode to down-and-outters tells of a once promising boxer, now a washed up hopeless drunkard, who takes in a young talent played by a youthful Jeff Bridges. Eschewing the boxing film tropes of rivalry and glory, the film instead captures a bond that builds between two men, barely 10 years apart in age, one with a lifetime of emptiness ahead of him, one with an empty lifetime already behind. Raw, gritty, and gorgeously human, Fat City brilliantly portraits the universal tragedy of two worn-out losers just trying to get by.
