From the Museum of the Moving Image -
Sir Michael Caine, Icon:
A conversation with Michael Caine followed by a preview screening of Harry Brown
Wednesday, April 28, 7:30 p.m.
At the Directors Guild Theater, 110 W. 57th Street, Manhattan
Presented in association with BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts). Sir Michael Caine is one of the world's most acclaimed screen actors; along with Jack Nicholson, he is the only actor with Oscar nominations in every decade since the 1960s. Caine has played a wide range of characters, some aristocratic, some reflecting his working-class roots. Some of his best roles have been hard men. He was a brutal hitman in Get Carter (1970), a gold thief in The Italian Job (1969), and a British officer in his star-making role in Zulu (1964). In his latest film, Harry Brown, Caine plays a widowed veteran who seeks vengeance against a youth gang after his friend is murdered. Caine will discuss his tough-guy roles in a conversation with clips moderated by Chief Curator David Schwartz. The conversation will be followed by an exclusive preview screening of Harry Brown (2009, 97 mins. Directed by Daniel Barber. With Emily Mortimer.), which will open in theaters on April 30.
