EVERYONE GONE TO THE MOVIES NOW WE'RE ALONE AT LAST The marketing department for this this flick asked me to spread the word so consider it spread GAME 6 - OPENS IN THEATRES MARCH 10MICHAEL KEATON, ROBERT DOWNEY JR. STAR IN FILM SET AGAINST BACKDROP OF GAME6 OF '86 WORLD SERIES "Game 6" is a gritty, intense, articulate and witty tale of one man's encounter with his demons, his passions and his infatuation with failure. It is about playwright Nicky Rogan (Michael Keaton), a die-hard Red Sox fan who has lived his entire life in New York City. The movie takes place on October25, 1986, the day of the opening of Nicky 's new play on Broadway and that historic sporting event, "Game 6" of the 1986 World series between the RedSox and the New York Mets. From the outset of the fateful day, things begin to go wrong. His daughter(Ari Graynor) informs him that his wife (Catherine O' Hara) wants a divorce. His mistress (Bebe Neuwirth) tells him that his lead actor has a parasite in his brain and can't remember his lines and an old acquaintance (GriffinDunne) regales him with recent tales of Steven Schwimmer (Robert Downey,Jr.), the powerful critic so poisonous, so destructive, that the New York theatre community lives in terror of him.Though he won't admit it, Nicky is desperate for another success on Broadway and impulsively decides to skip opening night of his play to watch his beloved team. Maybe he can break his downward spiral if his "cursed" Red Sox can finally win the World Series.Watch the Game 6 trailer: < |
