This Wednesday, 14th November 2018 at 6.30 pm, Sunaparanta will host the screening of ‘The Sting’ at Sunaparanta amphi theatre, presented by Arvind Sivakumaran

Film: The Sting (1973)

Directed by: George Roy Hill

Starring: Robert Redford, Paul Newman, Robert Shaw

Run-Time: 2 hrs 3 mins

Robert Redford and Paul Newman bring their considerable charm and charisma to this delightful old-fashioned comedy about a pair of con-men who put “the sting” on big-time crime boss Robert Shaw. Re-teaming with director George Roy Hill after their classic pairing in ‘Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid’ and set in 1930s Chicago to the background of Scott Joplin’s ragtime musical compositions, `The Sting’ is one of the all-time great entertainments, the kind that we rarely see anymore.

Winner of 7 Oscars including Best Picture and Best Director, surprisingly this remains Redford’s only Oscar nomination (for acting) to date.
