LUMI X NISF: A New Leaf

Environment & Nature
LUMI X NISF: A New Leaf
Event Description

One of America’s greatest comic legends, Elaine May (Tootsie, The Birdcage), directs, writes and stars in her debut feature as Henrietta, a clumsy but extremely wealthy botanist whose single-minded devotion to her work leaves her clueless about the world around her.

Henrietta’s life is turned on its head when she meets Henry (Walter Matthau), a once-rich playboy who has obliviously spent his entire inheritance and is looking to regain his fortune and social stature through seduction and murder.

A most unorthodox romantic comedy - May's debut feature, stuffed with deadpan hilarity and brilliant comic invention, is a darkly humorous reflection of the Golden Age of Hollywood’s classic screwball comedies.
