Magnolia at the Modern
Feb 07, 2014

“A strongly acted, character-driven melodrama, concerned with the dynamics of family in general and father-son issues in particular, [You Will Be My Son] presents situations so emotionally supercharged that the whole story could have come straight out of Balzac.” Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times.

Magnolia at the Modern is an ongoing series featuring critically acclaimed films. Tickets are $9; $7 for Modern members; $6 for Reel People. The Sunday noon show time is half price. Advance sales begin two hours prior to each show.
