In The Border, Nicholson plays a new Texas immigration enforcement agent who succumbs to the corruption of his colleagues (Harvey Keitel, Warren Oates) before trying to make amends by helping a young immigrant mother. With Valerie Perrine; music by Ry Cooder. “Perhaps the most underseen and underrated film, and performance, of Nicholson’s career…It’s time it got its due.” –Oliver Lyttelton. Edwards will sell and sign books after the screening. Scope print! 108 min.
