Film Festival presents an extremely rare 35mm print of this forgotten,
counterculture, lovers-on-the-run crime movie. Advance
tickets are strongly recommended.
ALOHA, BOBBY AND ROSE (1975):
Bobby (Paul Le Mat) has a ‘68 Camaro and a dead-end job. Rose (Dianne
Hull) has a young son and a nowhere life. One night, they meet, fall in
love and share a dream of leaving the seedy side of Hollywood for the
easy life of Hawaii. But when an innocent prank goes tragically wrong,
and they are falsely accused of murder, Bobby and Rose are on the run
from the law and for their lives. As they hit the highway just steps
ahead of the police, they find the '70s counterculture is rapidly
vanishing, and their dream of paradise is just out of their reach. This
film was a huge underground hit upon it's release, and was a major influence on future lovers-on-the-run movies including
TRUE ROMANCE. Unfortunately, it has since fallen into obscurity.
