John Krasinski was at NYC's IFC this weekend talking about his directorial debut Brief Interviews with Hideous Men, an adaptation of David Foster Wallace's novel. If you're interested in witnessing a series of debates on what constitutes love, and what men and women seek in relationships, then I suggest you grab a buddy and head to your nearest indie flick theater. I saw the film and it was very well done, amazing performances (Julianne Nicholson, Chris Messina, Max Minghella, Lou Taylor Pucci, Will Arnett, Will Forte, Dominic Cooper, Bobby Cannavale, and many more), and filled with thought-provoking commentary. I have to pick up the book now.
Check out these three clips from the post-film Q&A:
