A PERFECT WORLD - 35mm·presented by Misc. Films x Badlands Collective

a-perfect-world---35mmpresented-by-misc-films-x-badlands-collective

Misc. Films and Badlands Collective join forces to present a 25th anniversary screening of A Perfect World, the first part of Kevin Costner: King of America, a mini-season dedicated to one of the titans of modern American cinema.



A PERFECT WORLD - 35mm • presented by Misc. Films x Badlands Collective

After a botched prison escape, convict Butch Haynes (Kevin Costner) finds himself on the run with a seven-year-old hostage (T.J. Lowther), pursued by Clint Eastwood’s grizzled Texas Ranger and a young criminologist played by Laura Dern. This brooding thriller set on the eve of the Kennedy assassination is an intelligent, quietly devastating examination of damaged masculinity and the cyclical nature of violence.  


The film turns on a fascinating, ambiguous performance by Costner – playing against his heroic star image to striking effect – as the bruised and magnetic Butch. On release, A Perfect World was something of a box office disappointment, but the passing years have burnished its reputation and this sole collaboration between Costner and Eastwood is now widely regarded as among both star and director’s finest work.


A Perfect World screens as part of Kevin Costner: King of America, a mini-season programmed by Misc. Films and The Badlands Collective. A 30th anniversary screening of Bull Durham screens at the Regent Street Cinema on the 21st August.


“Eastwood’s greatest hidden gem” – The Playlist


“Costner's performance is absolutely riveting, a marvel of guarded, watchful character revealed through sly understatement and precise details” – New York Times
