Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Aug 18th at 5:30 for In a World… at the Landmark E Street Cinema . Look for Eric wearing a gray shirt and blue jeans in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
The hilarious and heart-felt comedy In a World… stars writer/director Lake Bell (No Strings Attached, “Childrens Hospital”) as Carol, a struggling vocal coach who strikes it big in the cutthroat world of movie-trailer voiceovers, only to find herself in direct competition with the industry’s reigning king-her father (Fred Melamed, A Serious Man). Amid pride, sexism and family dysfunction, she sets out to change the voice of a generation-and let her voice be heard. Bell’s directorial debut features a stellar supporting cast, including Demetri Martin, Rob Corddry, Michaela Watkins, Ken Marino, Nick Offerman, Alexandra Holden and Tig Notaro. Winner of the 2013 Sundance Film Festival Award for Best Screenplay.
