FIRST LOOK: Ben Gibbard In "Brief Interviews With Hideous Men"...
So, as one who reads this blog should know, I am quite the avid film buff. However, one thing I'm also insanely interested in is music. Sure, aside from the random soundtrack update or Playlist that I create, there isn't much in the way of film news bridging the two mediums.
That said, today is a bit different.
Originally thought, or at least rumored, to be part of the cutting room floor material for the upcoming John Krasinski directed film, "Brief Interviews With Hideous Men" Ben Gibbard is apparently going to be part of the theatrical release of the film.
Ben Gibbard for those who don't know is the lead singer of both Death Cab for Cutie and a personal favorite, The Postal Service. This is his acting debut, and early reviews of the film are mixed at best.
Here is the film's synopsis:
After her boyfriend mysteriously leaves her with little explanation, a doctoral candidate in anthropology at a prestigious East Coast university Sara Quinn is left looking for answers as to what went wrong. Directing all her energies into her anthropological dissertation, Sara conducts a series of interviews with men in an effort to uncover the secret thoughts that drive their behavior. She thinks she can remedy both her heartache and her academic challenges with a new research project and begins conducting a series of interviews with men. As she records the astonishing and disquieting experiences of various subjects, Sara discovers much more about men and herself than she bargained for.
Go see something good!
