Smooth Talk (1985)

No Man’s Land is KINO’s ongoing initiative to present the best contemporary and classic cinema directed by women. “I wanna introduce myself. I’m Arnold Friend and that’s my real name. And that’s what I want to be to you, a friend.” Director Joyce Chopra cast a then unknown Laura Dern as a rebellious teenager in smalltown USA looking for excitement in all the wrong places. The film is part teenage daydream, part cautionary tale when the innocence of checking out boys at the mall turns precarious with the emergence of the older Arnold Friend, a role seemingly tailor-made for the always great Treat Williams. Presented in a beautiful new digital restoration and screening for the first time in The Netherlands.
