Greta Gerwig will be in person this Monday, November 6 to present Mike Leigh’s Secrets & Lies and Brian De Palma’s Carrie, two selections from her curated series Origin Stories: Greta Gerwig’s Footnotes: Lady Bird.

Secrets & Lies
Mon November 6, 6.45pm
Mike Leigh, 1996, 142m, 35mm, UK/France

Already venerated in his native UK, writer/director Leigh broke through to an international audience with this stunning, emotionally balletic family drama, earning multiple Oscar nominations including Best Picture. Melancholic London mum Brenda Blethyn is unsure of how to relate when she is sought out by Marianne Jean-Baptiste, the daughter she gave up for adoption years before.

Mon November 6, 9.20pm
Brian De Palma, 1976, 98m, DCP, U.S.

From its traumatic opening sequence through its post-traumatic closing imagery, De Palma’s adaptation of Stephen King’s novel is shocking, empathetic, and unsparing. Both deservedly Oscar-nominated, Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie incarnate an unforgettable blood knot as a telekinetic teen trying to preserve her humanity while being raised by a religious fanatic mother.
