“There is life in every breath…” —Nathan Algren (Tom Cruise) in The Last Samurai
The Film Society of Lincoln Center is proud to be hosting An Evening with Tom Cruise on December 17 at 7:00pm. Kicking off a four-day Cruise retrospective, All the Right Moves: The Films of Tom Cruise, the event will feature an in-depth conversation with three-time Oscar nominated Cruise, moderated by the Film Society’s Kent Jones, and a sneak preview of Cruise’s latest work, Jack Reacher.
Adapted from the bestselling Lee Child novel, Jack Reacher features Cruise as an ex-military investigator searching for the truth against an unexpected enemy. Directed by Oscar-winner Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects) and co-starring Rosamund Pike, Richard Jenkins, Werner Herzog, David Oyelowo, and Robert Duvall, Jack Reacher and An Evening with Tom Cruise cannot be missed!
“It's incredibly fortunate that the Film Society chose the opening week of Jack Reacher to pay tribute to Tom's incredible talent and accomplishments” said McQuarrie. “I've had the great luck to find myself working with an incomparable actor in this extraordinary role at the peak of an unparalleled career.”
Cruise began his incredible career on the big screen in 1981’s Endless Love. That same year Cruise starred, alongside Timothy Hutton and Sean Penn, in the military drama Taps. Two years later Cruise had two roles that launched his career: Steve Randle in Francis Ford Coppola’s The Outsiders and Joel Goodsen in Risky Business. Cruise’s remarkable career has led him to action, adventure and unpredictable roles, proving he’s got a few more tricks up his sleeve. Cruise has worked with numerous award-winning directors, from Steven Spielberg to Oliver Stone to Stanley Kubrick, and has won more than 30 various awards himself, including three Oscar nominations for Magnolia, Jerry Maguire, and Born on the Fourth of July. Our seven-film retrospective represents just the tip of the iceberg of Cruise's awe-inspiring screen career.
All the Right Moves: The Films of Tom Cruise runs December 18 – 20 and features seven can’t-miss Cruise films: Born on the Fourth of July, Jerry Maguire, The Last Samurai, Mission:Impossible, Rain Man, Risky Business, and Top Gun. “Show me the money!” Save when you see any two films in the retrospective with our Double Feature Package!
Tickets for An Evening with Tom Cruise will be available to the general public starting December 10 at noon. All proceeds go to the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s 50th Anniversary Fund, which supports education and emerging filmmaker initiatives.
