Naro-Minded: Boogie Nights

  • Naro Cinema 1507 Colley Avenue Norfolk, VA, 23517 United States (map)

Set in 1977, back when sex was safe, pleasure was a business, and business was booming, idealistic porn producer Jack Horner (Burt Reynolds) aspires to elevate his craft to an art form. Horner discovers teenage Eddie Adams (Mark Wahlberg), a hot young talent working as a busboy in a nightclub, and welcomes him into the extended family of movie-makers, misfits, and hangers-on that are always around. Adams' rise from nobody to a celebrity adult entertainer is meteoric, and soon the whole world seems to know his porn alter ego, "Dirk Diggler;" but a toxic combination of drugs and egotism threatens to take him back down. Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson and featuring an amazing, award-winning cast, including John C. Reilly, Julianne Moore, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Don Cheadle, William H. Macy, and many more. (1997, R, 155mins)
