Sometimes a Great Notion 

Sunday, Mar 31, 2024 at 3:30 pm

Location: Redstone Theater

Introduced by filmmakers Nathan Zellner and David Zellner

Dir. Paul Newman. 1971, 113 mins. U.S. DCP. With Paul Newman, Henry Fonda, Lee Remick, Michael Sarrazin, Richard Jaeckel. Newman directed this sweeping saga set in the Pacific Northwest based on the celebrated novel by Ken Kesey (One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest) about a hard-bitten Oregon lumber family that bucks their close-knit community to deliver a shipment of logs during a strike. The film depicts the disintegration that follows as a man is killed, the family patriarch (Fonda) is injured, and eldest son (Newman) almost loses his wife (Remick) to his half-brother (Sarrazin). Featuring a knockout, Oscar-nominated performance by Richard Jaeckel.
