The Big Chill

Newcity Chicago

DIRECTED BY: Lawrence Kasdan

REVIEWED: 11-09-98

(1983, USA) Directed by Lawrence Kasdan. Kasdan's remake of "The Return of the Secaucus Seven" reflects on the turmoil of outgrowing the sixties. Kasdan says, "I had written the film not just from my view of the issues in the film, but also in reaction to 'Body Heat,' where I'd been cloistered with two actors in a terribly claustrophobic movie. I'd determined that my next film would have a lot of actors and that I wouldn't be stuck in an airless world." With Jeff Goldblum, Glenn Close, Tom Berenger, William Hurt, Kevin Kline, Meg Tilly. 105m. This reissue, not shown to critics, is the first in digital stereo, and allows one to revisit the Motown-tunes CD in the comfort of a movie theater.
