Don’t miss the chance to see David Fincher’s amazing new film, a shoo-in for multiple Academy Award nominations, on the big screen!
With a screenplay written by his late father, David Fincher’s best movie since Zodiac delves into the artistic vision that brought Citizen Kane into existence. At the top of most Best Film rankings, Citizen Kane showered glory on its young actor/director, Orson Welles. Finally, the acerbic, alcoholic screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz (Gary Oldham) gets his due, as Fincher explores the writer’s complicated relationship in the 1930s with William J. Hearst, the right-wing newspaper mogul who corrupted (or destroyed) everyone around him. You won’t easily forget the cinematography of Eric Messerschmidt, haunting musical score of Trent Raznor and Atticus Ross, and Amanda Seyfried’s poignant performance as the underappreciated actress Marion Davies.
“Mank is one of the year’s best movies if you’re the kind of person who genuinely loves movies and damn close if you’re not.” – Ty Burr, Boston Globe.
