BRUCE

Nov 4-8, 2019

In 1974, a 26-year-old virtually unknown director set out to film the number one best-selling novel of the day.

Invading a sleepy fishing island off Cape Cod to shoot on the open ocean, he battled weather, water, hostile locals, an exploding budget, endless delays, and a mechanical star named Bruce that simply refused to work.

Out of all this chaos, the world was given its first ever summer blockbuster and the career of Steven Spielberg.
