This evening at 5:30 pm, the International House will host a free screening of Knife Fight with director Bill Guttentag in attendance. RSVP to attend.
Knife Fight is about sex, drugs and money; it’s about how politics is really played-a knife fight in a telephone booth, where blood is spilled, brutal blows are common and the best candidate is not always the best person. It’s a world where the noblest ends are used to justify the darkest means.
Knife Fight stars Rob Lowe, Jamie Chung, Julie Bowen, Carrie-Ann Moss, Eric McCormack, Jennifer Morrison, and Saffron Burrows. The film was written by Bill Guttentag and Chris Lehane, who is one of the country’s top Democratic political consultants, and was an adviser to President Bill Clinton, Vice-President Al Gore, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and Wesley Clark. He currently advises a number of governors, senators and other elected officials.
P.S. Google image searching “knife fight” turns up some pretty horrifying imagery.
