The Film Stage Presents: The Rain People
Drama | 1969 | 101MIN
Francis Ford Coppola
“If I could say I could have been in any Coppola film, I would have probably wanted to star in The Rain People.” — Vincent Gallo
Despite consistent acclaim, The Rain People is (even by Coppola’s pre-Godfather standards) a rarely known object, and after decades of meager distribution American Zoetrope produced this 4K restoration. We hope recent excitement over Megalopolis will be time to discover his romantic road film—a lesser-seen corner in one of the great American filmographies that nicely presages his 1972 masterpiece with a cast featuring James Caan and Robert Duvall.
This is the New York premiere of the new 4K Restoration!
