About this Event

The Paradise Theatre is thrilled to present a new preservation of Elaine May's 1972 comedic masterpiece THE HEARTBREAK KID as a part of our soon to be announced June screening series! Long out of print, this rare screening will be the Toronto premiere of a glorious 2K scan of the film courtesy of film historian and collector Elizabeth Purchell.

In her sophomore directorial effort, Elaine May brings her acidic wit and deft understanding on male psychology to Neil Simon's hilarious screenplay. After a whirlwind courtship, shallow and egotistical Lenny (played to perfection by Charles Grodin) weds the painfully earnest Lila (played by Elaine May's daughter Jeannie Berlin in an Oscar-nominated turn). During their honeymoon in Miami Beach, Lenny becomes enamored with Kelly Corcoran (Cybill Shepherd) a college girl on holiday with her wealthy parents. What ensues, is a masterclass of cringe comedy as Lenny attempts to untangle himself from his predicament without breaking too many hearts along the way.
