Presented by Belcourt Theatre at Belcourt Theatre, Nashville TN

Mar 07 2020

Dir. Tom Hooper | USA | 2020 | 110 min. | PG | DCP

A beloved musical fantasy sprung from the poetry of T.S. Eliot, this singular adaptation went from mysterious unknown quantity to First Run fiasco to international punchline to Midnight Movie resurrection without ever leaving theatres. A horny fever dream/nightmare of class struggle, social mobility, and the power that hope holds for the hopeless, the film is its Thatcher-era theatrical progenitor dropped in a particle accelerator and doused in digital fur, incoherent sexuality, anemic orchestrations, and the kind of star quality that burns brighter than infinite amounts of prestige, quality or conceptual innovation could produce. With Ian McKellan, Idris Elba, Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, James Corden, Rebel Wilson, Ian McShane and Dame Judi Dench as the gathering of singing, dancing, teleological cats facing uncertain destinies and a confounded audience as they await some kind of new life. Regardless of which cat becomes the Jellicle Choice and is taken to the Heaviside Layer, that rebirth from the sad shameful hovel of this world ended up being what happened to this unusual adaptation.
