River Phoenix: A Short Life

Regular price €5,00

Tax included.

River Phoenix: A Short Life is the first biography of this talented but tragic young star. It explores the contradictions of a life that encompassed the hippy philosophy of his unconventional parents, the abnormal pressures of child stardom on TV, leading inevitably to the big time as a brat pack hopeful in Hollywood. However, there was real talent in this young actor which was recognised by up-coming directors and established names. His performance in Sidney Lumet's Running on Empty and his role as a male prostitute in My Own Private Idaho established his credentials as a serious actor with the potential for greatness.
