See Ellen Burstyn live in Melbourne after a screening of Requiem for a Dream

Ellen Burstyn gave a truly delightful Oscar-nominated performance in the classic romantic comedy Requiem for a Dream.
And by “delightful” we of course mean “utterly heartbreaking.” By “romantic comedy” we mean “devastating drama about drug addiction.”
The veteran 85-year-old actor will discuss this role and many others in a special Q&A session that will follow a screening of the film at Melbourne’s Classic Cinemas on February 7.
Burstyn, who will be in town to star in the upcoming play 33 Variations, has had a long and storied career and is a veritable Hollywood legend.
Over the years Burstyn has received six Oscar nominations, eight Emmy nominations and seven Golden Globe nominations.
