I’m posting the link to a short interview with Benjamin about why he supports the performing arts, and whether he finds the Valley Performing Arts Center inspiring. I know this comes a bit late, as the Valley Performing Arts Opening Benjamin and his wife attended dates to last January, but this interview has only recently been posted on YouTube by StarCam.
A free screening of Thumbsucker is scheduled on Friday, June 17, at 7 pm, at Dallas Museum of Art Horchow Auditorium.
Written and directed by Mike Mills and based on the novel by Walter Kirn, this coming-of-age film is a “compassionate and amusingly skewed story about embracing your weirdness.” Starring Lou Taylor Pucci in the title role, Thumbsucker also features Tilda Swinton, Keanu Reeves, Vince Vaughn, Vincent d’Onofrio, and Benjamin Bratt and a soundtrack by The Polyphonic Spree.
On Saturday, June 4, Benjamin attended Consumer Watchdog’s 2011 “Rage for Justice” Awards.
