Chloë Sevigny follows up KIDS with Steve Buscemi’s directorial debut, TREES LOUNGE.
A 35mm presentation.
This film, following her acting debut in Kids, proved the unmissable talent and charm of Chloë Sevigny. Trees Lounge is the writing and directing debut of actor Steve Buscemi and is a story about a man going through a life crisis that he just can’t put his finger on. He’s lost his job and girlfriend and has a life that revolves around Trees Lounge, a neighborhood bar over which he lives, full of the colorful eccentrics one finds in such place. He drunkenly wanders through his life, still in love with his ex, desperate for some sort of meaning of his life. His relationship with Savigny’s seventeen year old character, Debbie, further complicates things.
