To Sleep With Anger (1990)               1h 42m / PG / Drama
3:00pm Sunday, Feb. 12

A slow-burning masterwork of the early 1990s, writer/director Charles Burnett’s To Sleep with Anger is a singular piece of American myth-making. In a towering performance, Danny Glover plays the enigmatic Southern drifter Harry, a devilish charmer who turns up out of the blue on the South Central Los Angeles doorstep of his old friends. In short order, Harry’s presence seems to cast a chaotic spell on what appeared to be a peaceful household, exposing smoldering tensions between parents and children, tradition and change, virtue and temptation. Interweaving evocative strains of gospel and blues with rich, poetic-realist images, To Sleep with Anger is a sublimely stirring film from an autonomous artistic sensibility, a portrait of family resilience steeped in tradition and folklore.


Guests attending Black Love Classics Series films are invited to raise a glass for good, courtesy of series sponsor Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey. The company – which is founded, owned, and led by a Black woman, and is named after the first known African American master distiller, Nearest Green – will donate a dollar for each Old Fashioned cocktail sold in a pledge to raise up to $1 million for Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
