Written and Directed by one of Palace Cinema’s all-time favourite auteurs, Paul Thomas Anderson, LICORICE PIZZA tracks the treacherous navigation of first love in 1970’s Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley - it’s title referencing a much-loved chain of Southern California record stores that tempted patrons with free licorice, comfy couches and racks of music mags alongside the coolest vinyl releases.
PTA has put together an ensemble to rival his previous masterpieces Boogie Nights and Magnolia, with Bradley Cooper, Benny Safdie, Sean Penn, Ben Stiller, Maya Rudolph, John C. Reilly and newcomer Cooper Hoffman (son of the late Anderson veteran Philip Seymour Hoffman) in his film debut, starring as Gary Valentine, a young actor falling for Alana Kane (Haim's Alana Haim) and discovering that young love is a tangled time for all.
