Join Brooks Appelbaum and Dennis Bell to view and discuss films that showcase Steve Martin in dramatic roles that are far different from his “wild and crazy” comic persona! We have chosen these films for their remarkable range, and for Martin’s astonishing skills, in addition to acting—dancing, singing, and “swordplay”—within them.
Based on Martin’s novella of the same name, this tender story questions the meaning of love in a poignant triangle: complex young artist (Claire Danes), a wealthy and sophisticated older man (Martin), and a romantically clueless guy (Jeremy Schwartzman).
