'The Art of Racing in the Rain' to Screen at the Summer KCET Cinema Series on July 23
Q&A immediately following with producer Neal H. Moritz.
Based on The New York Times bestselling novel by American author, playwright and film producer Garth Stein, this heart-warming film is the story of Enzo (the voice of Kevin Costner), a race car-obsessed dog who believes he will be reincarnated as a human. While his owner Denny Swift (Milo Ventimiglia) teaches him about auto racing and human relationships, most of Enzo's ideas and knowledge come from watching television. Amanda Seyfried (“Mama Mia! Here We Go Again”) also stars.
Director Simon Curtis says, “Enzo’s brilliant voiceover is very insightful. Sometimes it’s very accurate, sometimes it’s flawed, but that’s part of the enjoyment. Sometimes he gets it right, sometimes he gets it wrong, but he’s a very well-meaning dog who wants to learn in the hope that he can come back as a human in his next life. One of the things I’ve most enjoyed about this shoot is that there are scenes in this film that one has seen hundreds of times – the birth of a child, the leading character being put into handcuffs, the wedding, and so on - but seeing them from a dog’s point of view makes those scenes very fresh and original.”
The film screens at 7:00 p.m. at The Landmark Theatre in West Los Angeles. Deadline’s chief film critic Pete Hammond, who can also be seen on KCET’s Must See Movies, will moderate Q&A immediately following with producer Neal H. Moritz. “The Art of Racing in the Rain” is available in theatres from 20th Century Fox (Disney) beginning August 9, 2019.
