About the Film
Me and Orson Welles is a romantic coming-of-age story about a young man who has a part in a play being directed by Orson Welles at New York’s famed Mercury Theater in 1937. The roller coaster week leading up to opening night has the charismatic Welles staking his career on this risky production while the young actor mixes with everyone from starlets to stagehands in behind-the-scenes adventures bound to change him forever. Claire Danes co-stars and Oscar-nominated director Richard Linklater is at the helm.
