Some movies leave you indifferent, some leave you satisfied, and some leave you feeling euphoric—walking on air and seeing the world through new eyes. What, then, is the difference between a bad ending, a good ending, and an insanely great ending?

Join screenwriter Michael Arndt for a screening of the new video version of his lecture: ENDINGS: THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE INSANELY GREAT. In this cinematic version of an Austin Film Festival favorite, Arndt explores how great endings work with a close analysis of the climaxes of STAR WARS, THE GRADUATE, and his own screenplay, LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE.

The screening will be followed by an extended Q&A with Arndt.

Arndt wrote the screenplays for LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE (2006) and TOY STORY 3 (2010). He also received shared screenplay credit for OBLIVION (2013), THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE (2013), and STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS (2015). He lives in New York.
