the last picture show

on Friday sister and I went to see
"Set in a small Texan town in the early 1950s, it centres on two friends - popular Duane (Jeff Bridges), who's dating wealthy Jacy (Cybill Shepherd), and the sensitive Sonny (Timothy Bottoms), who embarks on an affair with the school coach's wife. Adapted by Bogdanovich and Larry McMurtry from the latter's novel, it succeeds both as a funny, touching, psychologically astute coming-of-age tale and, thanks partly to Robert Surtees' magnificent monochrome camerawork, as a wonderfully vivid evocation of period and place" 
 (Timothy Bottoms as Sonny)

 (Jeff Bridges as Duane)

(Cybill Shepherd as Jacy)
