FEBRUARY 15, 2020 – 5:30 p.m.
Ever been in love with someone already betrothed to another? Such is the case for 14-year-old Ellie Christianson (a pre-fame Julia Stiles) whose #1 crush just happens to be married… to her mother. Luckily for Ellie, someone has it in for her cock-blocking mom, whose vicious murder opens the door for Ellie to don her dead mother’s most provocative dress, shower in her perfume, and finally make a move on her oblivious, workaholic dad. Director Michael Steinberg’s gleefully taboo-busting skin-crawler premiered (inexplicably!) at the 1998 Sundance Film Festival and, in her first starring role, won Stiles (deservedly!) the award for Best Actress at the (questionably!) prestigious Karlovy Vary Film Festival. This essential, scarcely-screened late-’90s oddity was shelved until Stiles saved that last dance into America’s heart and was finally unleashed on video in 2001. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to squirm, groan, and yearn to pour acid on your skin along with a mutually gobsmacked crowd. Heads up: Wicked contains scenes that may be triggering to some viewers.
