"The Touch" at Lightbox Film Center


Apr 18, 2019
07:00 PM until 09:00 PM


With his first English-language film, Ingmar Bergman delivered a compelling portrait of conflicting desires. In The Touch, a chance encounter between seemingly contented housewife Karin (Bibi Andersson) and David (Elliott Gould), an intense American archaeologist scarred by his family’s past, leads to the initiation of a torrid and tempestuous affair – one that eventually threatens the stability of Karin’s marriage to a respected local surgeon (Max von Sydow). Upon its release, the filmmaker declared this emotionally complex and sensitively performed film to be his first real love story. Followed by a Members-Only Reception including an exclusive POWERS Irish Whiskey tasting and ‘70s-themed snacks. This screening is part of Lightbox Film Center’s special series, Solid Gould: Elliott Gould in the 1970s, a collection of eight classic films saluting the inimitable Elliott Gould throughout April.
