Main Language - English
Countries & Regions - American film
Featuring a startling performance by Gena Rowlands which won her the Silver Bear for Best Actress in 1978, Opening Night is one of John Cassavetes’ most self-reflexive works, offering an insightful and intriguing evocation of the theatrical experience from both sides of the proscenium.
Broadway actress Myrtle Gordon (Gena Rowlands) rehearses for her latest play about a woman in denial at the onset of her autumn years. When Myrtle witnesses the accidental death of an adoring young fan, it leads to a crisis of confidence in both her professional and her personal life which threatens to undermine the whole production.
