Free Members-Only Screening: Are You Here
Includes a conversation with actor Laura Ramsey and writer/director Matthew Weiner
Emmy Award–winning creator and executive producer of the AMC series Mad Men Matthew Weiner makes his debut behind the feature-film camera as writer/director of this comedy-drama. Owen Wilson stars as a small-town weatherman Steve Dallas, who spends more time getting baked and chasing women than pursuing his craft. His offhanded and quick-witted demeanor makes him a star by natural right. His friendship with his best buddy, Ben (Zach Galifianakis) is another example of Steve's protracted adolescent circling the drain. Ben’s sister, Terry (Amy Poehler), is battling Steve to preserve Ben’s soul and their family, who takes a body blow when their late father’s widow—the much younger Angela (Laura Ramsey)—arrives and fights for the family’s property. This conflict further stokes long-standing arguments between Ben and Terry. Steve is caught in the middle. Weiner and Ramsey will be present for Q&A to talk about Weiner's big-screen maiden voyage, his first departure from the work for which he is best known.
