In her last major film performance, Cloris Leachman stars in Jump, Darling as the cantankerous grandmother to Russell, a down-on-his-luck drag queen who’s reeling from a bad breakup and escapes to live in the countryside. Wounded and hurting, he slowly returns to life by injecting new energy into the sleepy local gay bar – all while his rapidly declining grandmother desperately fights to steer clear of a retirement home. At once humorous and heartbreaking, the film is an ode to new beginnings and the soulful journey toward healing.
The film premieres Sunday, August 15th at 7:15 p.m. The screening will be accompanied by a celebrity memorial tribute to Cloris Leachman introduced by Cybill Shepherd, as well as a rare pre-recorded introduction by Cloris Leachman herself.
