GUY AND MADELINE ON A PARK BENCH Directed by Damien Chazelle Starring: Jason Palmer, Desiree Garcia, Sandra Khin. A full-fledged song-and-dance, tap-and-jazz musical, Damien Chazelle’s Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench boldly recasts the 1940’s MGM musical tradition in a gritty cinema verite style, resulting in an exuberant celebration of romance and music, and one of the most critically-acclaimed first features. Guy and Madeline have been dating for three months, but the excitement of first love has faded. When another woman catches Guy’s eye, sparks fly - spelling the end of Guy and Madeline’s romance. But when things don’t work out quite as planned, Guy must decide whether to try to win Madeline back – even if it may be too late. Their story unfolds in a world of jazz and tap, featuring original music composed by Justin Hurwitz and recorded by the Bratislava Symphony Orchestra.
