Indie Romance On Screen

When: Fri., Feb. 11 2011

Just in time for your V-Day canoodling, the Cleveland Museum of Art is debuting the most romantic indie film of 2010: Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench. Shot documentary-style in black and white, and filled with song, dance, and finger-popping jazz, the flick convincingly captures the grittiness of modern American romance, by way of two less-than-perfect protagonists — trumpeter-philanderer Guy (Jason Palmer) and aimless, introverted Madeline (Desiree Garcia) — who love, lose, then return to love again. The upshot is a movie that has been called "delightful" (Village Voice), "brilliant" (Time Out New York), and "magical" (Variety), and has snagged awards and nominations at festivals around the country. It makes its Ohio debut at 7 p.m. at the Cleveland Museum of Art's Morley Lecture Hall. Tix are $9 at the door, with discounts for students, seniors, and members. For more information, call 216-421-7350 or visit Find them at 11150 East Blvd. in University Circle. — Shanette Buford
