Institute History

  • 1986 Sundance Film Festival


As usual, precious little is known about Woody Allen’s new film, although inside word has been unusually strong. He’s says this about Hannah: it’s “about love, lust and adultery . . .and death and, uh, it’s a comedy.” We do know that the plot has something to do with three sisters played by Mia Farrow, Diane Weist and Barbara Hershey. Sam Waterston (from The Killing Fields) is the object of all their affections. Hannah and Her Sisters is anticipated to be Woody Allen’s most popular film since Annie Hall. Need we say more?
