IAR's Jami Philbrick Hosts a Special 'Would You Rather' Screening and Q&A

Do you already have plans this Friday?  Plans that don't involve seeing a special screening of Would You Rather hosted by none other than IAR Managing Editor Jami Philbrick

If so, then you're going to want to cancel those other plans, pick up a ticket for Would You Rather, and make sure you have your butt in a seat for this unique thriller, which will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers moderated by our roguish editor.

Any Angelino worth his or her salt knows that, in addition to the perpetual sunshine, gorgeous beaches, and general splendor of Los Angeles, one of the city's great benefits is the proliferation of film screenings unlike those anywhere else on the planet.  Such exhibitions allow for a whole new enjoyment of films both new and old, providing passionate film fans with access to the creative figures behind the movies.

This particular showing of Would You Rather is just such a screening.  Not only will attendees see this inventive horror tale, but afterwards, Jami Philbrick will moderate a Q&A with the film's director David Guy Levy (A Love Affair of Sorts) and screenwriter Steffan Schlachtenhaufen (Loose Cannons: The Movie).

The screening is set for 7:45 pm on Friday, February 15th at the Laemmle Noho 7 in North Hollywood.  Tickets for the show and the Q&A that follows can be purchased at this link.

Would You Rather is a psychological thriller that inverts the familiar eponymous game.  The story follows Iris, a young woman struggling to support her beloved, terminally ill brother in the wake of their parents' death.  When she receives an invitation to an exclusive dinner hosted by Shepard Lambrick, an aristocrat whose philanthropic streak suggests he could help, Iris gladly accepts.  Once she arrives, however, she finds that she is one of seven guests, all of them in desperate situations, and all of them subject to Lambrick's sadistic, psychologically complex game of Would You Rather, a game in which the stakes quickly turn deadly.

Brittany Snow (Pitch Perfect) stars as Iris, with horror legend Jeffrey Combs (Re-Animator) as Shepard Lambrick.  The supporting cast includes Sasha Grey (The Girlfriend Experience), Lawrence Gilliard Jr. (HBO's The Wire), Enver Gjokaj (The Avengers), John Heard (Home Alone), Jonathan Coyne (Gangster Squad), Logan Miller (Ghosts of Girlfriends Past), and Charlie Hofheimer (AMC's Mad Men).
