My Own Private Idaho

Part of Gus Van Sant
Friday, September 16, 2011, 7:00 p.m.

Dir. Gus Van Sant. 1991, 102 mins.

Phoenix and Reeves are star-crossed lovers in this freewheeling adaptation of Shakespeare’s Henry IV. An affecting and poetic study of alienated youth and gay counterculture, the film is one of the milestones of the 1990s New Queer Cinema. 

Tickets: If visiting the Museum after 4:00 p.m., tickets to Friday evening screenings are $12 ($9 for senior citizens and students). Otherwise screening is free with Museum admission.
