Aro Favourite Moderns, The


USA 1988, 121 minutes
Dir. Alan Rudolph
Rating: [M]
Genres: Classics, Drama / Arts & Artists

Topics: Period 1920s.


Aroview: A witty and exquisite recreation of Paris in the 1920s, complete with the ‘lost generation’ of Ernest Hemingway, Gertrude Stein and F Scott Fitzgerald, filling out a largely fictional mileu.

Centred round painter Keith Carradine, whose ex-wife Linda Fiorentino reappears on the arm of millionaire John Lone, this is a treat for literary spotters and fans of dir. Rudolph’s distinctive bittersweet comedies, and ranks with mentor Robert Altman's best.
