FREE SNEAK PREVIEW OF GAINSBOURG: A HEROIC LIFE AT THE MUSIC BOX THEATER

This coming Monday October 17, there is going to be a free sneak preview of the upcoming film Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life over at the Music Box Theater. If you are available at 7 PM Monday evening, RSVP for this event!! I saw a preview for this film the last time I was at the Music Box, and have been eagerly anticipating its arrival to the big screen!

"Inventive and artful, this surreal-tinged film about French-pop legend Serge Gainsbourg explores the inner demons of the late, great singer. After boyhood experiences of World War II anti-Semitism and being told he is "too ugly" to hold a girl's hand, we watch him develop into both a talent and a lothario. Despite his acclaim, and seduction of beauties like Brigitte Bardot, he remains plagued by his alter-ego, a virtual devil whispering in his ear about his inadequacies. Star Eric Elmosnino won the Cesar (the French equivalent of the Academy Award) for his turn as the louche pop icon. This original episodic film is not a straight-forward biopic, but instead captures the spirit of Gainsbourg as he creates, beds, and boozes." - Karen E. Baker, Flavorpill
