Film Independent at LACMA: Bring the Noise
July 20, 2017 • 7:30 pm PDT
1985, 94 min | Written by John Hughes; directed by John Hughes; with Anthony Michael Hall, Ilan Mitchell-Smith, Kelly Le Brock
Includes a live performance by Ulises Lozano, Carlos Chairez, and Gil Cerezo of Kinky
Lead Sponsor: Hollywood Foreign Press Association
It’s writer-director John Hughes’s 1985 sci-fi comedy about the geeks (Anthony Michael Hall and Ilan Mitchell-Smith) inheriting the Earth—or at least, one of its most powerful denizens, a doll brought to life by their experimentation and played with effortless charisma by Kelly LeBrock as the newly sentient figure with the capacity to make all of the boys’ desires come true, for good or ill. Weird Science is also the latest film to be given the Bring the Noise treatment. Bring the Noise is the program in which musicians choose a favorite film and provide a completely original score for it. For July, the band Kinky, who exploded on the scene with their 2002 album Kinky, will turn the full force of their instruments, intelligence, and talents to Hughes’s take on the dangers of teenage wish fulfillment.
Followed by a reception.
