Cosford screening: ‘Julia’

9:30 pm
1:00 pm
4:45 pm

Julia (Tilda Swinton) is an alcoholic. She is a manipulative, unreliable, compulsive liar who is all strung out beneath her still-flamboyant exterior. Between shots of vodka and one-night stands, she gets by on nickel-and-dime jobs. Increasingly lonely, the only consideration she receives comes from her friend Mitch, who tries to help her. But Julia shrugs him off, as her daily alcohol-induced confusion reinforces her sense that life has dealt her a losing hand and that she is not to blame for the mess she has made of it. Glimpsing imminent perdition, and after a chance encounter with a Mexican woman named Elena, Julia convinces herself—as much in panic and despair as for financial gain—to commit a violent act. Although her journey becomes a headlong flight on a collision course, Julia somehow chooses life over death. The film is in English and Spanish with English subtitles. Admission is $6 for all alumni, faculty, and staff, and is free for students. General admission is $8. The film screens on Friday, August 28 at 9:30 p.m., Saturday, August 29 at 1 and 6:15 p.m., and Sunday, August 30 at 3:45 and 9 p.m. For more information, visit
