Suburbicon Premiere at the Seventy-Fourth Venice Film Festival
La Scène: Where It's At
Director George Clooney and his wife, Amal, graced the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival on September 2, 2017, to celebrate his latest work, Suburbicon. The premiere in Venice marked the couple’s first public appearance since the birth of their twins in June 2017. Cast members Matt Damon and Julianne Moore also made appearances. The film is based on the true story of the Myers family, an African American family that moved to the white suburbs of Levittown, Pennsylvania, in 1957, where they were met with severe racism by the community. Clooney states that this is “an angry movie for an angry country.” The dark comedy/drama is a juxtaposition of social satire, racial tension, and mystery.
