McDonald at the Movies: A New Leaf

Thu, Aug 9 / 7 pm
Directed by Elaine May
1971, USA, 102 min

Once a month, comedian and co-founder of Kids in the Hall, Kevin McDonald will present a film handpicked from the archives of comic history.

Introduced by Kevin McDonald.

Walter Matthau plays a spoiled New York playboy who runs out of money due to his squandering ways and decides to find a wealthy woman to marry for her fortune and then murder her. He meets the klutzy wallflower Henrietta (Elaine May) a botanist who lives alone in a mansion. They marry after a three day courtship and eventually Henry has a change of heart and becomes attracted to Henrietta.

Reviews

An often brilliant and frequently hilarious comedy.
— Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
A New Leaf, not so much despite its editorial interventions as at least partly because of them, is nearly a masterpiece, a film of such wit and comic invention that it belongs among the great American comedies.
— Calum Marsh, Village Voice
