Misc. Films and Badlands Collective join forces to present a 25th anniversary screening of A Perfect World, the first part of Kevin Costner: King of America, a mini-season dedicated to one of the titans of modern American cinema.
After a botched prison escape, convict Butch Haynes (Kevin Costner) finds himself on the run with a seven-year-old hostage (T.J. Lowther), pursued by Clint Eastwood’s grizzled Texas Ranger and a young criminologist played by Laura Dern. This brooding thriller set on the eve of the Kennedy assassination is the sole collaboration between Costner and Eastwood and widely regarded as among both star and director’s finest work.
Kevin Costner: King of America continues with Bull Durham on 21st August at Regent Street Cinema.
