In support of the upcoming Fox Searchlight Pictures’ film, The Descendants, the USA Film Festival will be hosting an Alexander Payne retrospective at the Angelika Film Center in Dallas. USA FF members get in free and ticket prices are $6 for general public. Below is the banner which notes the screenings of Payne’s previous films are Monday-Thursday next week with a special ADVANCED SCREENING of The Descendants on November 14th. Have a look at the dates and times and hope you fans can make it out to a screening or two.
If you or anyone else in the Dallas/Ft.Worth area is a fan of Alexander Payne then it’ll be a treat to see his quirky films again in the theater and we invite you to join us. I’m not a big fan of Sideways (as I find it highly overrated) but Election and About Schmidt have their merits and are pretty enjoyable, if awkward, films. That said I’m looking forward to the screening of The Descendants next week but let me ask you all…what’s your favorite Payne film? Anyone planning on attending??
