This story first appeared in the Aug. 22 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine.
Seeing father-to-be Ryan Gosling without a shirt in Crazy, Stupid, Love may have been a spiritual experience for many, but apparently there are more metaphysical themes in the 2011 romantic comedy than meet the eye. To find out what those are, you’ll have to attend producer Denise Di Novi‘s summer screening series, Dharma Goes to the Movies.
According to a flier, the filmmaker is screening four of her films at Santa Monica’s meditation hideaway Against the Stream and leading a post-discussion of the “dharma in the process and dharma in the final product.” To be clear, though, the films aren’t necessarily associated with Buddhism or Buddhist teachings, the flier states.
Crazy, Stupid, Love screens Aug. 16, followed by Ed Wood on Sept. 20. (Heathers and Edward Scissorhands already have been shown.)
Di Novi declined to comment. As for Gosling, he’s not expected to attend.
