Former sketch comedy writer Barry Levinson’s directorial debut gave a number of today's notable actors—Kevin Bacon, Timothy Daly, Mickey Rourke, Steve Guttenberg, Daniel Stern—a crucial break, as well as being the film debut of both Ellen Barkin and Paul Reiser. Set during the last days of 1959, Diner is a seriocomic look at the lives of five Baltimore guys testing each other and their friendships as an era comes to an end. Writer-director Gavin O’Connor (Warrior, Miracle) and director Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) will appear in person to discuss the influence Levinson’s world had on their work.
