The Reliance

76 - 78 North Street, Leeds, LS2 7PN

Next up at the Little Reliance Cinema - we pay tribute to oddball American auteur Jonathan Demme with a screening of his 1986 anarchic cult classic Something Wild.

Free-spirited femme fatale Lulu (Melanie Griffith) 'kidnaps' straight-laced yuppie Charles (Jeff Daniels) for a wild cross-country road trip. We think its audacious blend of screwball romantic comedy, road movie and film noir, make it one of the great American indie films of the 1980s.

Featuring Ray Liotta in his first major role / cameos from John Waters, John Sayles, Su Tissue, The Feelies / a score by Laurie Anderson and John Cale / and a soundtrack with music from X, New Order, Oingo Boingo, The Go-Betweens, Jimmy Cliff, Big Audio Dynamite, David Byrne, Celia Cruz + many others.

Join us after the film in the bar for some post-film pub chat.
