With an all-star cast including Gwyneth Paltrow, Jake Gyllenhaal and Sir Anthony
Hopkins, Proof – which releases in theaters Sept. 16 – is based on the
David Auburn play about a devoted daughter (Paltrow) who must come to terms with
the death of her father (Hopkins). In this wonderfully multi-layered story, the
deceased father in question was a brilliant mathematician plagued by extreme mental
illness. His daughter, after searching through her father’s old notebooks
in order to find out more about his life and intelligence, discovers that she
may have inherited more than just her father’s genius.
Proof will be screened at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 30, at Hollywood’s ArcLight
Cinemas as part of AFI’s ongoing "Directors Screenings." Following
the special screening, there will be a Q&A discussion with Hopkins, as well
as Proof director John Madden (who also directed Paltrow in Shakespeare in Love).
ArcLight Hollywood is located at 6360 W. Sunset Blvd., in Hollywood. For more
