I Love Dick: The Complete Series (with Jill Soloway, Kathryn Hahn & Chris Kraus in person)

Presented by Women of Cinefamily

EVERY LETTER IS A LOVE LETTER is the potent title of Part 2 of Chris Kraus’ cult 1997 work of autobiographical fiction, I Love Dick. The Chris of the novel addresses her object, Dick – and her readers – with a stream of confessional, raw, effortlessly consumable letters. And now another letter: Jill Soloway (creator of the acclaimed Transparent) and playwright Sarah Gubbins have created an Amazon original series based on Kraus’ book. With Kathryn Hahn as Chris, Griffin Dunne as her bookish husband Sylvère, and Kevin Bacon as the enigmatic Dick, I Love Dick is true to the original in spirit but is relocated to the remote and singular art town of Marfa, Texas. Soloway and Gubbins’ all-female writers room probe Kraus’ original hot-tipped letters – and their rough and exact reflection of what it is to be both a woman and a woman-artist – with smart reference to work by a cadre of feminist and experimental filmmakers including Chantal Akerman, Carolee Schneemann, Naomi Uman and more.

2016, DCP, 205 mins.
