Why See Napoleon Dynamite: A Conversation with Jon Heder, Efren Ramirez and Tina Majorino?
"Eat the Food Tina!"
Heck yes! Join the stars of cult classic Napoleon Dynamite for a special live film screening and high spirited discussion with audience members this fall. In an event billed as BYOTT (bring your own tater tots), the film's cast members John Heder (Napoleon), Effren Ramirez (Pedro), Tina Majorino (Deb) and John Gries (Uncle Rico) come together to relive the smash-hit indie comedy's instantly quotable moments and deadpan dialogue, as well as offer behind-the-scenes insight into the awkward adventures of the titular teen that first stole collective hearts 15 years ago.
Sweet but never syrupy, Jared Less' ode to prepubescent struggles celebrates the nerds and the misfits. Set in the rural town of Preston, Idaho, Napoleon is a socially inept teen who daydreams his way through the pressures of high school and bullying, doodling ligers (lions crossed with tigers) and making up stories in which he is a hero with 'mad skills'. With the help of his newly found friends Deb, a shy girl and budding entrepreneur, and Pedro, a transfer student from Mexico, Napoleon sets about making his mark on his pastoral settings with the all important school dance on the horizon... Gosh!
Please note: Tina Majorino will only be appearing at Paramount Theatre, Denver (October 12th) and Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, San Antonio (November 15th). John Gries will only be appearing at Majorino Merriam Theatre, Philadelphia (November 18th).
