One of the stars of The Office will bring the work of David Foster Wallace to theaters on September 25.
Actor and director John Krasinski adapted “Brief Interviews With Hideous Men” by the late author, taking the film to Sundance this year. Click here to watch the film’s new trailer. Next week, 92YTribeca will be screening the film, along with an in-person Q & A with actors Ben Shenkman and Bobby Cannavale.
Here’s more on how the adaptation connected the book’s stories, from the release: “[The film] is a darkly funny and disturbing exploration of men and their complex relationships with women. Sara Quinn is interviewing men as part of her graduate studies. Her intellectual endeavor has emotional consequences as the men’s twisted and revealing stories are juxtaposed against the backdrop of her own experience. As she begins to listen closely to the men around her, she must ultimately reconcile herself to the darkness that lies below the surface of human interactions.”
