Neil Patrick Harris takes a break from his womanizing ways on How I Met Your Mother to star in an R-rated farce about those crazy New York parents. In The Best and the Brightest, Harris and Bonnie Somerville star as a married couple new to the city who hire a consultant (played by Strangers With Candy's amazing Amy Sedaris) to help their child get into a private kindergarten. At this two-night preview screening, writer-director Josh Shelov (he of Green Street Hooligans fame) and Somerville will be on hand for a Q&A for both nights of the screenings. Comedic director Adam Stein opens the first night, while satiric geek musician Jonathan Coulton does the second. Both nights are sure to be filled with enough laughs to make them legendary!
