Although we haven’t had a chance to see Four Lions yet, we have heard plenty of buzz about the film, and it has all been good. Now Drafthouse Films is sending the director, Chris Morris, on a screening and Q&A tour. The best part? It’s all open to the public.
Four Lions has received high praise on the festival circuit, including Sundance and South By Southwest. Chris Morris has been involved in comedy for over twenty years. He began his career as a BBC correspondant, and later specialized in media satires. This is his first feature film.
Synopsis: Chris Morris’ Four Lions is a funny, thrilling comedy that illuminates modern jihadism through the prism of farce. It understands jihadists as human beings. And it understands human beings as innately ridiculous.
The film will make stops in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Washington DC, Boston, and New York. For more information, visit the official Four Lions website. You can watch the embedded trailer after the jump. The film opens in limited release on November 5.
