The Moderns

Directed by Alan Rudolph
United States, 1988
Comedy, Drama, Romance


In this fanciful history of the expatriate-littered Paris of the 1920s, painter Nick Hart mingles with Ernest Hemingway and other leading lights of the Lost Generation. His paintings prove unpopular, so he supports himself by caricatures until an offer to engage in forgery becomes to good to refuse.
