After Hours

Saturday, July 19 at 2:00pm to 3:30pm

Central Library, Wheeler Auditorium 400 Cathedral Street, Baltimore, MD 21201

Martin Scorsese's After Hours is a dark, tragi-comic tale of a fish out of water, centering on an uptight, white-bread computer consultant from uptown Manhattan who finds himself in the nightmarish and incomprehensible world of Soho after dark.

The ordeal begins when Paul Hackett (Griffin Dunne) gets lonely and decides to leave the posh East Side and search the Soho streets for some loving from Marcy (Rosanna Arquette), the pretty young woman he met in a downtown cafe. He has her phone number and works up the nerve to call. She wants to see him, and so Paul grabs $20, hails a taxi and sets out. The weirdness begins when he loses his money during the high-speed cab ride. His visit to Marcy's loft, where he meets her crazed artist roommate Kiki (Linda Fiorentino), is a disaster, as is his encounter with the beehive-wearing retro waitress Julie (Teri Garr).

Though not a commercial success, After Hours developed a deserved cult following and remains that rare anomaly in Scorcese’s work – a comedy! 

Directed by Martin Scorsese, 1985, 97 min., rated R

Cast: Griffin Dunne, Rosanna Arquette, Verna Bloom, Linda Fiorentino, Teri Garr, John Heard, Tommy Chong, Cheech Marin.
