The Messenger: a great new film about a job I would never want

The Messenger is a new film written and directed by Oren Moverman, a former
Israeli paratrooper and writer of one of my favorite books, Jesus’ Son. It stars Ben Foster and Woody Harrelson as  casualty notification officers and follows them in their day to day
routine of telling families that their loved ones have passed. That’s a job I definitely wouldn’t want to have but incredibly interested in seeing pulled off on the big screen. It’s a very powerful film that will be screening in San Diego this Friday and Saturday. For the love of good cinema, I urge you to see it.
