Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner
Phoenix Art Museum – Whiteman Hall
This event is open to the public. Admission is free.
Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn are unforgettable as perplexed parents in this landmark 1967 movie about mixed marriage. Joanna, the beautiful daughter of crusading publisher Matthew Drayton and his patrician wife Christina, returns home with her new fiancé, John Prentice, a distinguished black doctor. Christina accepts her daughter’s decision to marry John, but Matthew is shocked by this interracial union; the doctor’s parents are equally dismayed. Both families must sit down face to face and examine each other’s level of intolerance. In Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, director Stanley Kramer has created a masterful study of society’s prejudices.
Not Rated, 107 minutes
