Sunset BoulevardBuy Tickets
A down-on-his-luck screenwriter floats lifeless in a swimming pool, narrating the events leading to his own death. Billy Wilder’s pitch-black classic stars Gloria Swanson as a fading silent film actress who enlists the hapless writer (William Holden) to help make her triumphant return to the screen, holding him in her thrall with magnetic madness. Sunset Boulevard remains one of the best films ever made about Hollywood, a perfectly crafted, perfectly acted must-see for everyone living in this big city.
“One of Wilder’s finest, and certainly the blackest of all Hollywood’s scab-scratching accounts of itself.” – Geoff Andrew, Time Out
“Remains the best drama ever made about the movies because it sees through the illusions, even if Norma doesn’t.” – Roger Ebert
