See this film: The Apartment @ the Coolidge

Billy Wilder was a master at combining heart-wrenching romanticism with brutal cynicism, as is the case in The Apartment (1960). Fidgety Jack Lemmon plays an office drone who seeks advancement by lending out his title digs to the company bigwigs. All goes well until he falls for the hapless cast-off (Shirley MacLaine at her most winsome) of the big boss (Fred MacMurray at his most loathsome). Stunningly photographed in widescreen black-and-white by Joseph LaShelle, who was nominated for an Oscar, it's part of the Big Screen Classics series at Coolidge Corner Theatre, 290 Harvard St, Brookline | Monday, July 30 @ 7 pm | $9; $6 seniors | 617.734.2501 or
