THE INVENTION OF LYING
Saturday, March 21
7:30 pm at PTBE
Few entertainers have been as controversial and as popular as Ricky Gervais. From his comically off-putting TV series, The Office, to his countless awkwardly funny moments hosting the Golden Globe Awards, Gervais has consistently cared less about the majority public opinion than he has about sharing his personal, embarrassing and uncomfortable experiences with this thing we call existence.
His directorial debut is no less off-putting and controversial than anything you've known him to do. However, this particular project of his calls into question the creation/existence of religion, the benefits of kindness, and the virtue of ignorance and "little white lies."
The Invention of Lying is a very funny film that should not be approached lightly and is sure to spawn a myriad of opinionated and enlightening debates that was clearly Ricky Gervais' intention from day one.
Join us for an evening of innovative filmmaking and involved and provoked discussion!
