Director John Turturro. Starring James Gandolfini, Susan Sarandon, Kate Winslet, Steve Buscemi, Bobby Cannavale, Christopher Walken, Mandy Moore, Eddie Izzard and Mary-Louise Parker. Turturro?s third film in the director?s chair illuminates love and nicotine in Brooklyn?s working class in this splendiferous musical containing what could be considered the year?s most varied and accomplished ensemble. From Tom Jones to Janis Joplin, the film?s musical score alone is sufficient to warrant any discerning listener?s attention. Join director John Turturro for a post-film Q&A session. Sponsored by the San Francisco Chronicle and the Clift Hotel.
