If you are near then its off to Film Society of Lincoln Center

Schedule for Thursday, September 20
7:30PM Run, Fatboy, Run
Series: Young Friends of Film [2007]
Director: David Schwimmer, Country: United Kingdom, Release: 2007, Runtime: 95
Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) stars in this quirky London comedy about lost love, written by comedian Michael Ian Black and directed by Friends star David Schwimmer in his feature directorial debut. Five years ago Dennis (Pegg) was at the altar about to marry Libby (Thandie Newton), his pregnant fiancĂ©e. He got cold feet and ran for the hills, and he’s been going in circles ever since. When Dennis discovers Libby’s hooked up with high-flying go-getter Whit (Hank Azaria), he realizes it’s now or never. He enters a marathon to show he’s more than a quitter but then finds out just how much sweat, strain and tears it takes to run for 26 miles. Nobody gives him a chance, but Dennis knows this is his only hope to be more than a running joke.

A Q&A with Pegg, Newton and Schwimmer will follow the screening. Join us afterward in the Frieda and Roy Furman Gallery for a reception with hors d’oeuvres and an open bar.
