Barfly (1987)

R 09/02/1987 (US) ComedyDramaRomance 1h 40m

Some people never go crazy. What truly horrible lives they must lead.


Downtrodden writer Henry and distressed goddess Wanda aren't exactly husband and wife: they're wedded to their bar stools. But they like each other's company- and Barfly captures their giddy, gin-soaked attempts to make a go of life on the skids.
