Release Year: 1977

Seeking romance and an escape from her repressive home life, a teacher begins to haunt singles bars, participating in a number of unsatisfying affairs. This drama, based on a true story, culminates in tragedy when the teacher’s quest leads to her victimization by a psychotic murderer.

Bruce LaBruce: “Looking for Mr. Goodbar  has to be one of the most audacious and fascinating movies of the seventies. The film has a murky and somewhat mysterious reputation, praised at the time of its release for Diane Keaton’s fearless performance, and doing good box office, but dismissed in some circles as tawdry and exploitative.”
