BOB & CAROL & TED & ALICE at Coolidge Corner

11/14/2016 Coolidge Corner Theatre

After returning to Los Angeles from a group therapy session, documentary filmmaker Bob Sanders (Robert Culp) and his wife, Carol (Natalie Wood), find themselves becoming vigilante couples counselors, offering unsolicited advice to their best friends, Ted (Elliott Gould) and Alice Henderson (Dyan Cannon). Not wanting to be rude, the Hendersons play along, but some latent sexual tension among the four soon comes bubbling to the surface, and long-buried desires don't stay buried for long. 105 minutes.

After the film, join us for a post-show conversation with Huntington Dramaturg Charles Haugland and Bedroom Farce actress Patricia Hodges.

Patricia Hodges previously appeared at the Huntington in Les Blancs. Broadway credits include Born Yesterday, A Man for All Seasons, Dancing at Lughnasa, and Six Degrees of Separation.
