Seen the cryptic poster up on the side of WPA Bakery? As far as I can figure the poster is for Rick Alverson’s movie Entertainment. The film will be shown as part of the Virginia Film Festival in Charlottesville on November 7, not sure what the 11/8/2015 is in reference to. Anybody?
From the Virginia Film Festival site:
Entertainment follows a broken, aging comedian (Turkington) as he tours the California desert in a vain attempt to reach his estranged daughter. By day he slogs through the barren landscape, while at night he seeks solace in the animation of his onstage persona. Fueled by the promise of a lucrative Hollywood engagement, he trudges through a series of increasingly surreal and volatile encounters. The comedian is caught in a cyclical struggle between being the center of attention and the object of alienation.
