The Big Chill is available on The Criterion Collection from 29th August 2022

After the shocking suicide of their friend, a group of thirtysomethings reunite for his funeral and end up spending a weekend together, reminiscing about their shared pasts as children of the sixties and confronting the uncertainty of their lives as adults of the eighties. Poignant and warmly humorous in equal measure, this 1983 baby boomer milestone made a star of writer-director LAWRENCE KASDAN (Body Heat) and is perhaps the decade’s defining ensemble film, featuring memorable performances by TOM BERENGER (Platoon), GLENN CLOSE (Fatal Attraction), JEFF GOLDBLUM (The Fly), WILLIAM HURT (Broadcast News), KEVIN KLINE (The Ice Storm), MARY KAY PLACE (Being John Malkovich), MEG TILLY (Agnes of God), and JOBETH WILLIAMS (Poltergeist). And with its playlist of hit songs from the sixties, The Big Chill all but invented the consummately curated soundtrack.
