Brief Interviews with Hideous Men

Brief Interviews with Hideous Men

Adapted and directed by John Krasinski (“The Office,” AWAY WE GO), BRIEF INTERVIEWS WITH HIDEOUS MEN is a darkly funny and disturbing exploration of men and their complex relationships with women. Based on the book by David Foster Wallace, the film features an all-star cast that includes Will Arnett, Timothy Hutton, Ben Shenkman, Christopher Meloni, Ben Gibbard, Chris Messina, Bobby Cannavale, Will Forte, Dennis O’Hare, Lou Taylor Pucci, Max Minghella, and Julianne Nicholson. A graduate student (Nicholson) endeavors to explore the male psyche for her thesis by interviewing a cross-section of men. The men’s twisted and revealing stories are juxtaposed against the backdrop of her own experience. As she begins to listen closely to the men around her, she must ultimately reconcile herself to the darkness that lies below the surface of human interactions. Krasinski and his fine cast successfully bring the first-ever David Foster Wallace work to the big screen with a film that audiences will be talking about for a long time.
