The evening kicks off at 7:15 PM with a preview screening of Kline's new film, "My Old Lady," which was written and directed by Horovitz.

Following the screening, Kline and Horovitz will discuss the film with host Insdorf.

Kevin Kline has won the Oscar ("A Fish Called Wanda") and the Tony (The Pirates of Penzance, On the Twentieth Century) and is a five-time Golden Globe nominee for his roles in "Sophie's Choice," "Dave," "In & Out," "Soapdish" and "De-Lovely."

Horovitz adapted "My Old Lady" from his own play. The film, according to press notes, "follows New Yorker Mathias Gold (Kline) to a beautiful Paris neighborhood, where he tries to claim the sprawling apartment left to him in his estranged father's will. But he discovers tenants—Mathilde (Maggie Smith), who was close to his father, and her testy daughter (Kristin Scott-Thomas)—and must find a way to coexist with them."

Annette Insdorf is the director of Undergraduate Film Studies at Columbia University.
