One week only! | From the Western capitalist pigs who brought you Neighbors and This Is The End comes the first rude, obscene, and outrageous comedy to ever start an international incident!
Dave Skylark (James Franco) and his producer Aaron Rapoport (Seth Rogen) run the popular celebrity tabloid TV show "Skylark Tonight." When they discover that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is a fan of the show, they land an interview with him in an attempt to legitimize themselves as journalists. As Dave and Aaron prepare to travel to Pyongyang, their plans change when the CIA recruits them, perhaps the two least-qualified men imaginable, to assassinate Kim Jong-un.
The film that the chains refused to show garnered a small release thanks to the efforts of The Arthouse Convergence, the national coalition of independent art house cinemas of which SIFF Cinema is a member. Support the rights of artists - see The Interview on the big screen!
