The Young Lions Committee presents an advanced screening of Much Ado About Nothing followed by a Q&A with director Joss Whedon.
Filmed entirely in black-and-white over the course of 12 days by director Joss Whedon (The Avengers, TV's Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Angel), Much Ado About Nothing tells the Shakespearean tale of sparring lovers Beatrice (Amy Acker) and Benedick (Alexis Denisof). With a Whedon-esque cast that includes Nathan Fillion, Clark Gregg, and Sean Maher, this classic comedy is given a contemporary spin--offering a dark, sexy and occasionally absurd view of the intricate game that is love.
