Michael Dorsey is a talented actor, but his demanding nature and stubborn temperament have antagonized every producer in New York. Now his agent insists no one will hire him. But Michael needs money – eight thousand dollars to be exact – and to earn it, he’s willing to play the role of a lifetime.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Click here to register for the Flick of the Week (FREE with a suggested donation of $5) Please note, signing up for the Flick of the Week discussion does not grant access to the film. Registration gives you access to the film discussion. The film will need to be watched in one of the above listed locations before the film discussion.
  2. Watch the film when it’s convenient for you. You will receive an email with a link to where you can watch online (may require a subscription or rental fee, depending on platform).
  3. Join the Zoom film discussion where you can ask questions and share your opinions. The call will take place on Sunday, June 7 at 2:00 pm.

Every week while we are closed, we will have a new recommendation to share with you, along with a Sunday Zoom conversation. Please consider making a donation when you register. Your support will help OGT remain a vibrant center for cinema culture once this turbulent period is behind us. The show must go on—and it will, thanks to you.
