100 PROOF AMERICAN FAMILY VALUES ON THE ROCKS WITH A TWIST

Event images for website

"…a sublimely original American comedy.”

–John Hartl, The Seattle Times at SIFF

Game show baron, Rex, enlists the reluctant help of son, Gerald, a gay performance artist, after the family matriarch runs off with a shrimp boat captain. Between comical attempts to lure her back, father and son hash out old family differences while testing recipes for Rex’s book on the history of cocktails.

Filmmaker Susan Winter’s reconciliation story is a love anthem to classic cocktail culture and Old Hollywood screwball comedies. This poignant father/son story broke new ground in 90s LGBTQ+ film representation. It’s prescient observations on class, gender and popular culture carries fresh relevance and could have been written today.

ShadowCatcher Entertainment is proud to present the digital restoration of this dazzling, rediscovered, arthouse festival hit, created by an original voice in American, indie filmmaking.

“A matched pair of dandies with ultra-refined tastes and razor sharp wits, whose wry verbal sparring is some of the best heard on screen since Tracy and Hepburn…the exotic cocktails they incessantly mix and enjoy are the most beautiful seen, anywhere…”
