Film Comment Talk: Richard Linklater and Ginger Sledge on Where'd You Go, Bernadette
Tuesday, August 13, 2019
This event is now standby only! Pending availability, standby tickets will be given out first-come, first-served starting 20 minutes prior to the talk.
We are delighted to welcome Richard Linklater and longtime producer Ginger Sledge to discuss their work and the new film Where’d You Go, Bernadette, starring Cate Blanchett, Kristen Wiig, Billy Crudup, Judy Greer, and Laurence Fishburne. Based on the runaway bestseller, Where’d You Go, Bernadette centers on Bernadette Fox (Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett), a once-famous architect who becomes compelled to reconnect with her creative passions after years of sacrificing herself for her family. From the director of Boyhood, the Before trilogy, Dazed and Confused, Waking Life, and many more, Where’d You Go, Bernadette is “about love, but for an American film, it’s something even rarer—a film about the rekindling of a woman’s brilliant career” (Michael Koresky, Film Comment July/August 2019).
