TimesTalks - Adam McKay and Michael Lewis
with Charles Duhigg
Tuesday, February 16, 2016 at 7:00PM

Directors Guild of America Theater
110 West 57th Street
New York, NY 10019

Meet comedy mastermind Adam McKay, the Oscar®-nominated writer and director of “The Big Short” — which is up for five Academy Awards®, including best picture — and Michael Lewis, the award-winning author of the best seller about the 2008 financial crisis on which the movie is based. “The Big Short,” which stars Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt, and was produced by Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment, is a compelling and entertaining cinematic indictment of the real-life events that led to the credit and housing bubble collapse. In his review in The New York Times, film critic A. O. Scott called it “A true crime story and a madcap comedy, a heist movie and a scalding polemic.” Hear more about the film and what inspired it when McKay and Lewis talk with The New York Times senior editor Charles Duhigg.
