According to MoveOn,

the film is a powerful “docudrama” set in the year 2055, after global warming has done massive damage to humanity. Oscar-nominated actor Pete Postlethwaite stars as a historian who “looks back” on real footage from 2008 to try to answer the question, “why didn’t we stop climate change while we had the chance?”

In addition to the movie, the theater will simulcast a Hollywood-style premiere event from New York City in a solar-powered tent to over 700 theaters in the U.S. and 50 other countries and will feature such celebrities as Gillian Anderson, Heather Graham, and Moby.

MoveOn says,

MTV’s Gideon Yago will interview Nobel Peace Prize recipient Kofi Annan, environmental scientist James Hansen, and The Age of Stupid director Franny Armstrong. Ending the night will be a special, acoustic performance by Radiohead’s Thom Yorke.

The Age of Stupid was number one at the box office in the U.K. this spring, and this one-night event is poised to break the Guinness World Record for biggest simultaneous film screening. You can watch the trailer here: http://www.moveon.org/r?r=51921&id=17229-6732763-EiWbSBx&t=1

The critics call it:

  • “A captivating and constantly surprising film.”—George Monbiot, The Guardian1
  • “Think An Inconvenient Truth but with a personality.”—Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times2
  • “Political incompetence and inaction can usher in disaster… Rome is burning, and Franny Armstrong is fiddling the right tune.”—Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian3

The Age of Stupid looks us right in the eye and asks what kind of future we want for our kids. Be one of the first to see this important film and help spread the word so that as many Americans as possible hear its message. We hope to see you at the theater.
