Seminar: Something Wild

Event Date
Wednesday, February 15th

DigBoston film critic Jake Mulligan will give an overview of the film in the context of Jonathan Demme's career.

Featuring a killer soundtrack and electric performances from Jeff Daniels, Melanie Griffith, and Ray Liotta, Something Wild, directed by oddball American auteur (and Coolidge Award honoree!) Jonathan Demme, is both a kinky comic thriller and a radiantly off-kilter love story.


Jake Mulligan is the film section editor and critic at DigBoston, is a member of the Boston Society of Film Critics, and has taught classes and seminars at the Coolidge before, including “Defining Screwball Comedy” in 2019 and “Roger Corman, Producer” in 2020. His film criticism has also been published in The Boston Globe, The Boston Phoenix, and Filmmaker Magazine.
