THE QUIET AMERICAN
+ Q&A WITH PHILLIP NOYCE
This program is presented in association with
Popcorn Taxi in association with Inside Film present a very special advanced preview screening of PHILLIP NOYCE’s topical new film, THE QUIET AMERICAN, starring MICHAEL CAINE, BRENDAN FRASER and DO THI HAI YEN.
Pulled from its release schedule after September 11, THE QUIET AMERICAN could not have re-emerged to make it’s mark at a more important time. American Aid worker Alden Pyle (Brendan Fraser) arrives in Saigon in the fall of 1952, at the height of the Vietnamese fight for independence from French colonial rule. He befriends a London Times correspondent (Sir Michael Caine), and falls for his beautiful Vietnamese mistress (Hai Yen). Nothing, and no one, are as they seem, in this adaptation of Graham Greene’s classic and prophetic story of love, betrayal, murder and the origin of the American war in Southeast Asia.
After the screening, director PHILLIP NOYCE joins INSIDE FILM’s Editor BEC SMITH, for an indepth on-stage discussion and Q&A session about the film. For more info on PHILLIP, see below.
