Outfest will be co-presenting this special advance screening with The Cinefamily. Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor both shine in one of the most highly anticipated movies of 2010—and one of the most astounding true stories we’ve seen in ages. In the tradition of madcap “con man” films like THE GRIFTERS or CATCH ME IF YOU CAN, the lightning-paced I LOVE YOU PHILLIP MORRIS chronicles the too-crazy-to-be-real tale of Steve Russell (Carrey), a recently-busted fraud junkie and recently-out gay man whose love for his fellow inmate (McGregor) can't be contained by any prison. After springing the two of them, Russell cons, double-cons and triple-cons his way into a house-of-cards life of luxury—bouncing in and out of jail along the way in a “can-you-top-this odyssey beyond madcap farce into total derangement.” (Salon.com) Written and directed by BAD SANTA creators Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, the film’s not only a thrilling and sexually frank rollercoaster of twists and turns, but also the vessel for one of Carrey’s richest kaleidoscopic performances. Be one of the lucky few to catch Phillip Morris before its wide release—and join Glenn Ficarra and John Requa for a Q&A after the screening!
