This Week At The New Beverly!

RIAN JOHNSON'S FESTIVAL OF FAKERY
Coming to the New Beverly Cinema Feb. 18-28
A week of films regarding frauds, fakers, charlatans, hoaxers, hucksters and other unsavory sorts, each selected and presented by Rian Johnson for your "viewerly" edification!

Rian Johnson exploded onto the film scene in 2005 with BRICK, a modern day film noir. Beloved by audiences and critics alike, the film is clearly the beginning of a long and brilliant career. Johnson's second theatrical release, THE BROTHERS BLOOM, will be released this year and will receive two advance screenings at the New Beverly as part of the "Festival of Fakery"!

Schedule permitting, Rian Johnson will introduce the films in person all 10 days of the festival.
