Cinematique Presents: “Juliet, Naked”

Oct 1, 2018

Juliet, Naked runs from Monday, October 15 thru Friday, October 19. It screens Monday to Friday at 7pm with an additional screening on Wednesday at 4pm in Thalian Hall’s Stein Theatre.

Based on the novel by Nick Hornby, Juliet, Naked tells a comic account of life's second chances. Annie (Rose Byrne) is stuck in a long-term relationship with Duncan (Chris O'Dowd), an obsessive fan of obscure rocker Tucker Crowe (Ethan Hawke). When the acoustic demo of Tucker's hit record from 25 years ago surfaces, its release leads to a life-changing encounter with the elusive rocker himself.

 

 

From the critics:

Hawke — looking attractively dazed and confused — underplays his way into our hearts. Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

The film buzzes along with introspective conversations, all-too human moments, a terrific soundtrack with everyone from Marianne Faithfull to The Pretenders, and a few delightfully awkward scenes that really drive home the whole “don’t meet your idols” conceit.
