The Flick reader æ 177 pages Ü randarenewables â In a rundown movie theater in central Massachusetts three underpaid employees sweep up popcorn in the empty aisles and tend to one of the last thirty five millimeter projectors in the state With keen insight and a ceaseless attention to detail The Flick pays tribute to theNd a ceaseless attention to detail The Flick pays tribute to the power of movies and paints a heartbreaking portrait of three characters and their working lives A critical hit when it premiered Off Broadway th Wow okay I'm still trying to formulate my thoughts about this play because I enjoyed it so much It's incredibly thought provoking and harrowing in its representation of mental illness and race even though the mentions are subtle I absolutely adored Avery as a character in fact I loved all of the characters Each one was carefully crafted and incredibly diverse even if I didn't necessarily like them as people Annie Baker really understands the nuances of how people talk and act with one another which I really enjoyed I do wish that a few details had been tied up overall For example Avery and his dreams Avery and his therapist what actually happened to Rose and why is she the way she is what happens to Sam That's why I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 but I adored this I'm so glad that I took this theatre class because I never would have known about this story if I hadn't

The Flick In a rundown movie theater in central Massachusetts three underpaid employees sweep up popcorn in the empty aisles and tend to one of the last thirty five millimeter projectors in the state With keen insight a This play surprised me in how much I enjoyed it I'm not a big fan of reading plays but I'm wending my way through reading all the women Pulitzer works so this came up on my list Something about the immediacy of the conversations in a very imaginable work place among very real and normal people that we can all picture interacting with if not working alongside pulled me in right away and made this an easy read There is plenty of foreshadowing and symbolism to be found for those who want to get into an academic analysis but the story is somehow uietly great on its own Work conversations reveal timeless but not worn out feeling themes of friendship unreuited love sexuality surprising loyalties betrayals and the march of progress Somehow this all fits into a play without overloading the flow and aura It's strange to me because while Baker's work is not a high glamour adventure it comes off as having a profound depth when you shut the cover and reflect on the experience Don't read this for a great adventure or thrilling tale or even melodramatic romance Go into it expecting a mysteriously satisfying glimpse at real life as relationships develop and change among uite dynamic personalities and their actions prompt conseuences I wonder if I would like The Flick as much in performance with all the pauses that must be uite lengthy in a theater I wonder if that adds to the craftsmanship somehow or if it would just annoy me over time since this must hit 3 or 4 hours But as a read I enjoyed it than I ever usually do with plays Perhaps that is because it has a strong psychological element and subtle revelations about relationships?
