THE ART OF SELF-DEFENSE
USA, 104 minutes
Director: Riley Stearns
Starring: Jesse Eisenberg, Imogen Poots, and Alessandro Nivola
Previous film festivals: SXSW

Jesse Eisenberg stars in this dark comedy about a lonely, frail man (Casey) who must deal with severe trauma, after being attacked violently on the street. Casey’s path to recovery, for both his broken body and broken soul, goes through world of karate. With the guidance of a charismatic and mysterious Sensei and a downtrodden female student, Casey regains his confidence and discovers his inner macho. But, …. at what cost?

What we think: A brilliant take on what it means to be a fragile man (as well as a strong woman) in an alpha male-dominated world, full of dark humor and cynical wit.

Expected to attend: Riley Stearns
