The Apartment

Tuesday, June 19

Film History Suburbs & Beyond

Hoping to improve his career prospects, a wage slave (Jack Lemmon) loans his flat to company execs for their illicit trysts, but finds himself growing close to his boss’s lovelorn mistress (Shirley MacLaine). Tough yet tender, Wilder’s bittersweet comedy tells the story of two people who find each other in a world of callousness and opportunism.
