PGA EAST NEWS FOR THE WEEK OF February 21st...

NYC

PGA East Screening
THOROUGHBREDS
Thursday, March 1 at 7:30 pm at Dolby 88

Childhood friends Lily and Amanda reconnect in suburban Connecticut after years of growing apart. Lily has turned into a polished, upper-class teenager, with a fancy boarding school on her transcript and a coveted internship on her resume; Amanda has developed a sharp wit and her own particular attitude, but all in the process of becoming a social outcast. Though they initially seem completely at odds, the pair bond over Lily's contempt for her oppressive stepfather, Mark, and as their friendship grows, they begin to bring out one another's most destructive tendencies. Their ambitions lead them to hire a local hustler, Tim, and take matters into their own hands to set their lives straight.

RSVP & more info.

Author Talk
DAVID MAMET PRESENTS CHICAGO: A NOVEL
Wednesday, February 28 at 7:30pm
Brooklyn Central Library, Dweck Center

A big-shouldered, big-trouble thriller set in mobbed-up 1920s Chicago—a city where some people knew too much, and where everyone should have known better—by the Oscar-nominated screenwriter of The Untouchables and Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright of Glengarry Glen Ross. Mike Hodge—veteran of the Great War, big shot of the Chicago Tribune, medium fry—probably shouldn’t have fallen in love with Annie Walsh. Then, again, maybe the man who killed Annie Walsh should have known better than to trifle with Mike Hodge. Free - Reservation & more info
