Talk to Me

Buy Tickets


Double Feature with CAVEMAN’S VALENTINE

(2007) dir Kasi Lemmons w/Don Cheadle, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Mike Epps, Taraji P. Henson, Cedric the Entertainer, Martin Sheen [118 min; DCP]
A fantastically entertaining film inspired by the true-life story of “Petey” Green (Cheadle), who overcame a prison sentence to become a popular Washington, DC talk show host and channeled his gift of gab into a commitment to activism.

“Talk to Me offers uplift without phoniness, history without undue didacticism and a fair number of funny, dirty jokes.” – A.O. Scott, New York Times

“Lemmons, her extraordinary cast and gifted crew deliver laughing, crying and plenty of signifying.” – Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post

“Smart, conflicted, and immensely entertaining.” – Ty Burr, Boston Globe
