WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Izzy (Poots) is a prostitute-turned-Broadway-actress who consistently juggles both professions as start to get out of control – for instance, Broadway director Arnold Albertson (Wilson) pays for her services despite being married to the show’s lead Delta Simmons (Hahn), while the playwright Joshua Fleet (Forte) also falls for her despite the fact that he’s seeing her therapist Jane (Aniston)…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

A screwball comedy in all senses of the phrase, She’s Funny That Way combines a starry ensemble cast with the talents of legendary director Peter Bogdanovich, who is best known for the likes of The Last Picture Show and Paper Moon.
