Brief Interviews With Hideous Men
John Krasinski of The Office makes his acclaimed directorial debut with this adaptation of the book by David Foster Wallace. After being abruptly dumped by her boyfriend, a graduate student (Julianne Nicholson of Law & Order: Criminal Intent) decides to interview a series of men about their reasons for behaving badly. What follows is an intimate portrait of the male species at their best, worst and most hilariously complex, confessing their desires, failures, frustrations and resentments. Academy Award winner Timothy Hutton, Will Arnett (Arrested Development), Bobby Cannavale (Will & Grace), Will Forte (SNL), Christopher Meloni (Law & Order: SVU), Chris Messina (Julie & Julia), Michael Cerveris (Fringe), Frankie Faison (The Wire) and Krasinski himself star as just some of the interviewees in this darkly funny and savagely enlightening comedy/drama that electrified audiences at Sundance.
