Just in time for Valentine’s Day is the US virtual premiere of Don Scardino’s newest directorial feature, “Our (almost completely true) Story,” from February 11-14.
Per the official press release, the official synopsis of “Our (almost completely true) Story” reads: An aging screen legend (Mariette Hartley) and jobless voiceover actor (Jerry Sroka) navigate the LA senior dating scene, in this (mostly) true-life romantic dramedy. Who would expect anything to come from two people who first meet in a bird store? She’s tall, famous, and classy. He’s short and hides behind Groucho Marx and Woody Allen impressions. Out-of-work actors of a certain age face the indignities of Gen Z Hollywood assistants, oblivious to names, and agents who ignore calls. Despite their baggage, early life traumas, and a serious health crisis, as these opposites attract, they find it’s never too late for love. Set against the beautiful backdrop of Los Angeles, this adorable crowd-pleaser is also a love letter to Hollywood. Co-written by Hartley and Sroka and directed by Emmy winner Don Scardino (30 Rock).
There will be a live virtual Q&A on February 14 with Mariette Hartley, Jerry Sroka, and Don Scardino. The Q&A begins at 5:00 pm PST/8:00 pm EST. Tickets cost $12 and the tickets automatically include the Zoom Q&A webinar. When you buy a ticket, you are able to access the film from any point from February 11-14.
“Our (almost completely true) Story” stars Mariette Hartley, Jerry Sroka, Bernie Kopell, Morgan Fairchild, Tess Harper, Sam McMurray, Peter McNichol, and others.
