Honoring Keith Carradine two of his favorite films The Duelists (3:00 pm) and The Moderns (5:15pm) screen at the Kenwood Restaurant venue Thursday Sept 18.

This witty, elegant, graceful and clever film (Los Angeles Reader) stunningly evokes the legendary milieu of Paris café society. Starring Keith Carradine, Linda Fiorentino, Genevieve Bujold,Geraldine Chaplin, Wallace Shawn and John Lone, The Moderns is ‘tantalizing unabashedly romantic [and] a glowing evocation of an era (The Hollywood Reporter)! Paris, 1926.

Nick Hart is a struggling American artist who lives amongst the expatriate community in 1920s Paris. He spends most of his time drinking and socializing in local cafés and pestering gallery owner Libby Valentin to sell his paintings. He becomes involved in a plot by wealthy art patroness Nathalie de Ville to forge three paintings. This leads to several run-ins with American rubber magnate Bertram Stone, who happens to be married to Hart’s ex-wife Rachel.
