Alan Arkin will be in the spotlight at the Film Society of Lincoln Center's Walter Reade Theater later this month for an evening celebration of his work. On December 19th at 7 p.m., the Film Society will feature and on-stage conversation between the actor and associate director of programming Kent Jones. The chat will feature clips from Arkin's work, including a screening of his recent work, "Little Miss Sunshine." In a statement, Jones said:
Alan Arkin is, quite simply, one of our very best actors. He has a special genius for zeroing on the idiosyncrasies and oddities of his characters, for bringing them to life with all their anxieties and quirks. His timing is always razor-sharp, his moves are mesmerizing, and I could listen to his voice forever. He's a national treasure.For more information, please visit the Film Society website.
