DIRECTOR: JOHN BOORMAN
CAST: BURT REYNOLDS, JON VOIGHT, NED BEATTY, RONNY COX
Reynolds and three of his fellow Atlanta businessman buddies head into the backwoods for what’s meant to be a little weekend canoe trip, and instead stumble across the hidden horrors of the old Southland. The endurance test crucible that they’ll pass through makes for pure, pulse-pounding cinema, and cuts deep into the question of what being a man means at the beginning of the 1970s—something that Reynolds’ persona would define and refine in years to come.
Deliverance is screening as part of the series Burt Reynolds.
