The Judge

LACMA

5905 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036

7:30pm

Includes a conversation with actors Robert Downey Jr. and Robert DuvallRobert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall—two of the finest actors of their generations—team up for the first time in this can-you-go-home-again comedy-melodrama from director David Dobkin (Wedding Crashers) and screenwriters Nick Schenk (Gran Torino) and Bill Dubuque, from a story by Dobkin and Schenk. Downey stars as glib, bullying powerhouse defense attorney Hank, who is pulled back into family dysfunction and small-town Indiana after the death of his mother. He returns to the collateral-damage orbit of his brothers (Vincent D’Onofrio and Jeremy Strong) and his strong-willed dad (Robert Duvall), a judge who rules the burg with a fierce sense of justice and fair play, which often leaves no room for feeling. Hank is trapped in his former home, when a family tragedy forces him to defend his unforgiving father in court. Vera Farmiga is the girl he left behind, and Billy Bob Thornton and Dax Shepard are lawyers who get in Hank’s way.

Simian Mobile Disco

El Rey Theatre

5515 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036

9:00pm

James and Jas of Simian Mobile Disco, though quite different in personality, are both modest fellows. In conversation each of them, more than once, puts the success of SMD down to sheer luck – however, this is not really true. Yes, they were in the right place at the right time in some senses, but it takes an awful lot more than that to bring an album as sonically glorious and ambitious as Unpatterns to as broad an audience as they are managing to reach. And as you get deeper into the details of their career to date, it becomes very clear how much tenacity, scholarship, imagination and sheer love for what they do, as well as good fortune, has got them to where they are today.
