Movies: 'Swoon' at Billy Wilder Theater

February 02, 2012

The tale of Nathan Leopold Jr. and Richard Loeb is one of the most lurid and perpetually compelling in crime noir. Collegiate lovers who murdered a child for kicks in 1924, their sexual relationship had gone under-explored in dramatic retellings. 1992's "Swoon" takes a whole look at the psychology of the relationship that resulted in one of America's most famous murder cases. It's preceded by the decidedly more cheery "Jollies," a documentary of a young lesbian's self-discovery. Billy Wilder Theater, 10899 Wilshire Blvd., L.A. 7:30 p.m. Fri. $9. http://www.cinema.ucla.edu
