Licorice Pizza

February 26, 2022

This event occurred as part of the 21/22 Hop Film season. This is an archived view.

A comedy, a drama, a romance, a memory, Licorice Pizza is Paul Thomas Anderson's tender, funny ramble forged in all the hope and absurdity of adolescence.

LICORICE PIZZA | Official Trailer | MGM Studios

The film tells the story of Alana Kane (singer Alana Haim) and Gary Valentine (Cooper Hoffman) growing up, running around and falling in love in the San Fernando Valley, 1973. Written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson (Phantom Thread, There Will Be Blood), Licorice Pizza tracks the treacherous navigation of first love. Sean Penn, Tom Waits and Bradley Cooper bring their talents to bear in this warm and fuzzy love letter to an era.

With first-rate production values and a gloriously memory-drenched 35mm cinematography, Licorice Pizza is a visual feast brimming with razor-sharp dialogue, hilarious comedic vignettes, brilliant performances from Hoffman and Haim as well as the veteran, star-studded supporting cast and some genuine heart. D: Paul Thomas Anderson, US, 2021
