    • Join Claire Lyons, Curator of Antiquities at the J. Paul Getty Museum, for insight into the importance of context and display of antiquities.

    • In a dusty, under-populated California resort town, a naïve southern waif, Pinky Rose (Sissy Spacek), idolizes and befriends her fellow nurse, Millie Lammoreaux (Shelley Duvall).

This dreamlike masterpiece careens from the humorous to the chilling to the surreal.
