Don’t miss the Q&A…

After you register for this screening, be sure to register for the follow-up event, Members-Only Q&A: The Half of It, featuring a conversation with writer/director Alice Wu. (Wednesday, May 6 – 3:00 pm PT)

Bookish introvert Ellie Chu is perfectly content with her life: watching old movies with her widowed father and ghostwriting papers for her high school classmates to help pay the bills. But her side gig turns personal when lovelorn jock Paul Munsky (Daniel Diemer) hires her to craft love notes to Aster Flores (Alexxis Lemire) — a smart, popular girl out of both of their leagues… and Ellie’s own secret crush. Just as the duo’s plan begins to work, a new wrinkle emerges: Ellie and Paul have fallen into a deep friendship neither could have anticipated, giving rise to a surprising love triangle. Written and directed by Alice Wu, The Half of It is a heartfelt comedy-of-errors about searching for perfect love — and finding yourself in the process.

2020, 104 minutes program, color | Written and directed by Alice Wu; with Leah Lewis, Daniel Diemer, Alexxis Lemire, Collin Chou, Becky Ann Baker, Catherine Curtin, Enrique Murciano, Wolfgang Novogratz
