Ed Asner will be in Ridgefield Wednesday night. He will be part of a question and answer session after the screening of his film "Let Go" during the Ridgefield Playhouse Film Society's "Lost and Found Film Series". Also on hand for the night will be Director Brian Jett. Jett also wrote Let Go, a comedy that follows a parole officer and three ex-convicts placed under his supervision.
Jett says using the afflictions of modern love as a common thread, the stories build to a poignant climax as each of the characters struggle to free themselves from both literal and figurative bonds.
The melancholy parole officer (David Denman), struggling with the doldrums of married life, has three eccentric ex-convicts placed under his supervision. Daria DeMint (Gillian Jacobs), is a sultry femme fatale on the run from a psychological ex-boyfriend that she stole from and whose heart she’s broken. Multiple EMMY Award winning actor Ed Asner plays Artie Satz, a cranky geriatric criminal. Satz feebly attempts to resume his career of crime but is continually thwarted when nobody will take him seriously. Nearing rock bottom after his criminal conviction for insurance fraud and the breakup of his marriage. Kris Styles (Kevin Hart), an Ivy League educated African-American doctor, is forced to take the most menial jobs imaginable to satisfy the conditions of his parole.
The screening is at 7:30 Wednesday night at the Ridgefield Playhouse.
