As part of the 11th Jameson Dublin International Film Festival, Hollywood star Danny DeVito will attend and take part in an exclusive onstage Q&A at the Jameson Cult Film Club screening of his movie, LA Confidential on Thursday 21st February.
Speaking about the screening, Festival Director Gráinne Humphreys said “It is a great honour to welcome Danny DeVito to the festival, I really admire him as a director and producer and he really makes me laugh. This is a man who, with Jersey Films, produced Pulp Fiction and most of the classic American films of the 80’s and 90’s. The fact that he could have that effect on modern cinema, and at the same time give performances as subtle as he was in LA Confidential or as completely over the top as he was in Romancing the Stone is quite spectacular. It’s impossible to think about Danny DeVito without smiling, and if that is the gift the festival gives to Dublin audiences, I will be very happy.”
Following on from last year’s successful Jameson Cult Film Club screenings of Silence of the Lambs, JAWS, Blues Brothers and Reservoir Dogs, Jameson are kicking off the 2013 series with the neo-noir film, LA Confidential. This very special screening promises to transport the audience right back to glamorous Los Angeles in 1953 with its compelling mix of LA history, police corruption and celebrity scandals. Themed special effects and live theatre timed perfectly with the onscreen action will create an electric atmosphere in the venue.
