Indie Memphis' year-round collaboration with the Brooks Museum of Art continues with an encore presentation of the 2010 Indie Memphis Film Festival favorite And Everything is Going Fine.
And Everything is Going Fine is an intimate portrait of the late, great master monologist Spalding Gray, as described by his most critical, irreverent and insightful biographer: Spalding Gray.
What: And Everything is Going Fine
When: Brooks Museum of Art
Where: 2 pm Saturday, April 16
Admission: $8 for the general public
/ $6 for Indie Memphis members.
Director Steven Soderbergh, who collaborated with Gray on Gray's Anatomy (1996), has sifted through rare and revealing footage to construct a riveting final monologue. There are glimpses of Gray's father, and of his son Forrest (who provides soaring music for the end credits), but mostly this is an inspired one-man show, a bittersweet display of Spalding's playful and embattled intelligence, his gift for tracking universal truths by looking himself squarely in the eye.
