Ham on Rye

Available to rent Nov 20 - Dec 18
Directed by Tyler Taormina
2020, USA, 85 min

This title is available to rent via Cinematheque at Home for $10. This is not only an opportunity for our patrons to see new cinema, but is an important way that they can continue to support independent film during this pandemic with 50% of all sales supporting our theatre.

Ham on Rye, a coming-of-age comedy centered on the nervous excitement of youth and the strange horror of entering adulthood uses an expansive ensemble of over one hundred performers, including non-actors, musicians, 90’s Nickelodeon child stars, and more, to explore a suburban community’s relationship with a prom-like ritual and the decay of the human spirit. It begins with the crowd-pleasing spirit of a John Hughes movie and fades slowly into an off-kilter dystopia with the energy of Dazed and Confused.

Reviews

Ham on Rye has the uncanny echo of a disturbing real-life dream. A hauntingly off-kilter revision of the end-of-high-school drama.
- Richard Brody, The New Yorker
Honest. An artful look at teenage alienation.
- John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter
At first glance, Tyler Taormina’s “Ham on Rye” plays like Dazed and Confused with more poetry and less connective tissue, or Eighth Grade with benevolence in place of cruelty. Then things get weird.
- Ty Burr, Boston Globe
Ham on Rye’s aesthetic is breathtaking. An Elegant, Grand Chronicle of a Chaos Foretold.
- Chuck Bowen, Slant
