Ebert Presents... Ripley's Game (2002)
All Library locations will be closed on Monday, February 15 in observance of Presidents' Day.
The Off-the-Wall Film Series screens cult films selected by Pulitzer Prize-winning film critic Roger Ebert, who has curated this summer of must-see cinema exclusively for the Library.
Ripley’s Game stars John Malkovich as a sociopath intent on driving an innocent man to murder. Ebert describes it as “a study in evil that teases the delicate line between heartlessness and the faintest glimmers of feeling” that boasts “one of Malkovich’s most brilliant and insidious performances.” Based on the Patricia Highsmith novel. Rated R. (110 min.)
Films are screened on the Rooftop Terrace. Film-goers are welcome to bring seating.
