Hailed by Variety as ‘a magical amalgam of Godard, Miles Davis, Morris Engel and The Umbrellas of Cherbourg’, Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench is the most thrilling, romantic, imaginative, toe-tapping American independent production of recent years. Shot on black-and-white 16mm, it is a sublime re-imagining of an MGM musical for the modern age. Guy (Jason Palmer) is a Boston jazz musician who drifts from affair to affair until he meets aimless introvert Madeline (Desiree Garcia). Music nurtures their love and when the relationship is cut short by Guy’s philandering ways it is music that helps to bring them back into each other’s lives. A film of joy with a beautiful original soundtrack by Justin Hurwitz. Part of Glasgow Film Festival
