Richard Jenkins will speak after the 7:10pm screening of The Visitor (Overture Films)
The Visitor is making my short list for the best of 2008 so I'm thrilled to announce that I will be moderating a post-film discussion with actor Richard Jenkins this Friday May 2 at Landmark's La Jolla Village Theaters after the 7:10 PM showing. If you have not yet seen the film, then make an effort to come out for this screening and meet actor Richard Jenkins (probably best known as the deceased patriarch of Six Feet Under ). Jenkins delivers a wonderfully subtle performance as a disconnected and widowed professor who is unexpectedly pulled out of his shell by a pair of illegal immigrants. The film is about character first and then raises issues of social concern. So put off seeing Iron Man until Saturday and come out and support an exquisite indie film.
