Martin Scorsese, 2017 155 minutes Liza Minnelli, Robert De Niro, Lionel Stander, Barry Primus, Mary Kay Place USA English 9 July 2017 no subtitles

Liza Minnelli and Robert De Niro team up in Martin Scorsese’s romantic post-war musical film that celebrates the glorious days of New York’s big band era.

Think of Martin Scorsese and invariably dark-themed, violent movies leap to mind. Scorsese's repertoire, however, cannot be so easily categorized. In 1977, he took a stab at musical drama, with a film he called 'his valentine to Hollywood'.

Inspired by such films as THE MAN I LOVE (1946) and MY DREAM IS YOURS (1949), Scorsese wanted to pay tribute to the music he had grown up with in NEW YORK, NEW YORK - the big band sounds of Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, and Louis Prima.

The story of two musicians who are drawn together and then part, NEW YORK, NEW YORK explores a relationship eroded by mutual competition, different career goals, and on-the-road touring, all set to key songs from the period.
