Synopsis

Director Tony Bill and producer Helen Bartlett, two of RiverRun’s 2020 Master of Cinema honorees, explore romance, sentimentality, and dying young with Untamed Heart. The film stars Christian Slater as Adam, an shy and awkward busboy who saves waitress Caroline (Marisa Tomei) from being raped in a park late one night. Naturally, the two begin to fall in love. As their relationship progresses, Caroline discovers that Adam has a heart defect, though he claims he has a baboon heart. Rosie Perez also stars as Cindy, Caroline’s sassy comic-relief-providing co-worker. Screening followed by a Q&A with director Tony Bill and producer Helen Bartlett. 35mm archival print courtesy of Park Circus
