While Steven Spielberg's Bridge Of Spies, which had its (world premiere was at the New York Film Festival) and stars Tom Hanks, Amy Ryan, Alan Alda, Mark Rylance, Billy Magnussen and Eve Hewson, is showing on three screens tonight, there will be a Meadowland conversation with Olivia Wilde and director/cinematographer Reed Morano, moderated by Anne-Katrin Titze following the 7:40pm screening.

Hitchcocktober, a series of Alfred Hitchcock films that includes North By Northwest, Rope, Psycho, The Man Who Knew Too Much and Strangers On A Train is also going on this month at Village East Cinema.

Reed Morano's meadow is a place where the worst parental nightmare blooms. Olivia Wilde and Luke Wilson are Sarah and Phil, whose son Jesse disappears without a trace, and we get an unflinching look at how the couple unravel, each one in their own way. Wilde shows us Sarah's descent into hell without a trace of vanity and with each painful epiphany registering as defiance against an unfair world. Wilson's Phil is a man who builds walls around himself.

Village East Cinema 181-189 2nd Ave (between 11th and 12th Streets) New York City
