The ICA is proud to present a preview of this hilarious, bittersweet tale of fame-seeking and its consequences. Based on Toby Young's bestselling memoir and starring Simon Pegg, Kirsten Dunst, Jeff Bridges and Gillian Anderson, the film follows a young British writer as he struggles and fails to fit in at a high-profile New York magazine.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion, What's Wrong With Wanting To Be Famous?, with Toby Young, Cosmo Landesman, Peter Whittle and other guests to be confirmed.
