Patton Oswalt and Daniel Waters live in person!

This just in! We have just confirmed that the funniest man in the universe (according to an internal Alamo poll) Patton Oswalt will be live in person in support of Sex and Death 101. Also in attendance is director/screenwriter Daniel Waters (who, by the way, is the man who penned seminal 80s teen classic Heathers).

Both will be in attendance for the Saturday, September 22nd screening at 9:00 PM. The film screens again on Wednesday, September 26 at 3:05 PM.

Patton, who recently starred as Remy the gastronomically inclined rat of Ratatouille, this time portrays the guardian of a mysterious omniscient super-computer with a seemingly mischievous sense of purpose.

About the film:

Roderick Blank (Simon Baker) is a successful modern man, content with his personal and professional life. However, a week before his wedding to a suitably stuffy fiancee, Roderick’s perfectly planned existence is upended by a mysterious e-mail (from the aforementioned supercomputer) containing the names of every woman he has had sex with and, eerily, every woman he will have sex with in the future. He is stopped in his tracks when he meets a femme fatale (Winona Ryder) who targets men guilty of sex crimes against women.
