“Born to Be Blue” to be screened at the Carroll Arts Center
Film Lovers in Carroll County (FLICC) has chosen the 2017 film “Born to Be Blue” to be screened at the Carroll Arts Center on Friday, April 21 at 1 pm & 7:30 pm. Ethan Hawke lights up the screen as jazz legend Chet Baker, whose tumultuous life is thrillingly reimagined with wit, verve, and style to burn.
In the 1950s, Baker was one of the most famous trumpeters in the world, renowned as both a pioneer of the West Coast jazz scene and an icon of cool. By the 1960s, he was all but washed up, his career and personal life in shambles due to years of heroin addiction. In his innovative anti-biopic, director Robert Budreau zeroes in on Baker’s life at a key moment in the 1960s, just as the musician attempts to stage a hard-fought comeback, spurred in part by a passionate romance with a new flame (Carmen Ejogo). Creatively blending fact with fiction and driven by Hawke’s virtuoso performance, Born to Be Blue unfolds with all the stylistic brio and improvisatory genius of great jazz.
The matinee showing at 1 pm will have open captioning to increase the enjoyment of movies at the Arts Center for those with hearing impairments. The 7:30 pm showing will have captioning if requested in advance. Assistive Listening Devices are always available.
