Legendary filmmaker Hal Ashby (Coming Home, 8 Million Ways to Die) makes his directing debut with this acclaimed social satire starring Beau Bridges (The Hotel New Hampshire) as a wealthy young man who leaves his family’s estate in Long Island to pursue love and happiness in a Brooklyn ghetto. When Elgar Enders (Bridges) buys a Park Slope tenement, he fully intends to evict the occupants and transform the building into a chic bachelor pad. But after meeting the tenants, Elgar adopts a “love thy neighbor” policy instead: first he falls head-over-heels for a sexy young go-go dancer… then he begins an affair with the sultry, married “Miss Sepia 1957.” Featuring brilliant performances by Lee Grant (The Balcony) in an Oscar®-nominated role, Pearl Bailey (Porgy and Bess), Louis Gossett Jr. (The Laughing Policeman), Robert Klein (Hooper), Trish Van Devere (Where’s Poppa?), Hector Elizondo (The Flamingo Kid), Gloria Hendry (Black Belt Jones) and Susan Anspach (The Big Fix), and with a potent script by Bill Gunn (Ganja & Hess) based on the novel by Kristin Hunter (Boss Cat), The Landlord is one of the most original and provocative screen comedies to deal with race relations in urban America. Produced by Norman Jewison (The Thomas Crown Affair) and shot by Gordon Willis (The Godfather).
