Stormy Monday + Q&A 15

Mike Figgis, UK, 1988, 93m.

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with Mike Figgis

Award-winning British director Mike Figgis’s first movie is a neon and rain-drenched noirish thriller set in Newcastle. The film stars Tommy Lee Jones, as the hawkish property developer/gangster Cosmo, trying to carve out a profitable chunk of the town; Melanie Griffith and a very young Sean Bean, as lovers Kate and Brendan who are drawn into a bitter turf war; and Sting as the ambivalent jazz club owner, Finney. All accompanied by a cool jazz soundtrack (written by Figgis), Stormy Monday is an evocative slice of late 80s British film-making.

After the screening, we will be joined by Mike Figgis for a Q&A about the development and production of the film, which opened the door to Hollywood, where Mike went on to make the celebrated Internal Affairs and Leaving Las Vegas.
