Sunset Boulevard

English with Thai subtitles

16 June 2017 8 July 2017

Arguably the greatest movie about Hollywood, Billy Wilder's masterpiece Sunset Boulevard is a tremendously entertaining combination of noir, black comedy, and character study. The story is of a screenwriter, hired to rework a faded silent film star's script only to find himself developing a dangerous relationship.
