The Outfest UCLA Legacy Project Screening Series rolls on with Kiss of the Spider Woman at 7:30. William Hurt and Raúl Juliá star as prison cellmates in an unnamed Latin American country, the former for sex crimes related to his homosexuality, the latter for being a leftist revolutionary. Hurt’s character passes the time and escapes the reality of his situation by recalling lines from movies both real and imagined, and the two gradually bond. Hurt won an Oscar for his role in the film, which was adapted from Manuel Puig’s novel of the same name.
