HOPPER - Exhibition on Screen
90 mins

Director: Phil Grabsky

Edward Hopper’s work is the most recognizable art in America – popular, praised, and mysterious. Countless painters, photographers, filmmakers and musicians have been influenced by his art – but who was he, and how did a struggling illustrator create such a bounty of notable work?


This new film takes a deep look into Hopper’s art, his life, and his relationships. From his early career as an illustrator; his wife giving up her own promising art career to be his manager; his critical and commercial acclaim; and in his own words – this film explores the enigmatic personality behind the brush…Combined with expert interviews, diaries, and a startling visual reflection of American life, Hopper brings to life America’s arguably most influential artist.

Released to coincide with the opening of the major Hopper exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York in Oct 22.

The Parks are a wealthy Seoul family whose lifestyle relies on the hired help of tutors, a chauffeur and a housekeeper.

The Kim family is destitute and living in a flooding basement, but they are clever and united. When the son Kevin realises that his own family could easily fulfil all the roles in the Park household he hatches a plan that will inveigle the whole family into the lives of the Parks.

Parasite won best film at the 2020 Oscars, the first foreign language film ever to achieve this.

“A gasp inducing masterpiece” (Mark Kermode - The Guardian)

Cast: Anya Taylor-Joy, James Cosmo and Mia Goth

Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever and rich is a self-proclaimed matchmaker who meddles in the romantic relationships of her friends. She thinks she knows best but in reality, wreaks havoc. Her misguided matches and romantic missteps eventually lead her to find love that has been there all along in plain sight.

A glittering satire of social class and the pain of growing up with plenty of romantic intrigue and gender politics.  Certain liberties are taken with Austen’s original text to often hilarious effect, which just adds to the fun.

All the performances are excellent.
