‘The Big Chill’ turns 30

Prepare to feel old: “The Big Chill,” Lawrence Kasdan’s drama about a group of thirtysomething college friends who reunite for the funeral of one of their own, turns 30 this year. The Toronto International Film Festival sent an email this morning announcing the milestone, and will be celebrating during this year’s festival with a screening of a newly restored digital print of the film, a reunion of much of the film’s cast and crew, and a special post-screening Q&A. “The Big Chill” was the opening-night film for the 1983 TIFF, and went on to win the festival’s prestigious People’s Choice Award. Present for the reunion will be Glenn Close, Tom Beringer, Meg Tilly, Mary Kay Place and JoBeth Williams, along with writer/director Kasdan, screenwriter Barbara Benedek, and several producers. The question: Just what, exactly, are Kevin Kline, Jeff Goldblum and William Hurt up to that’s more important than this? (I kid, guys. I kid.)

I remember thinking they were pretty old, back in the day. Not so much.
