The New York Film Critics Series is much more than simply another specialty screening series. Hosted by Rolling Stone’s Peter Travers and the BBC’s Alison Bailes, the events include a nationwide screening of a new film, accompanied by a conversation with some of the movie’s cast and crew. This time up, it’s The Book of Love, a story about an architect (Jason Sudeikis) and young girl (Maisie Williams) who bond over an unusual project that helps both deal with loss in their lives. The on-screen discussion will include co-star Jessica Biel, Justin Timberlake (who contributed music) and director Bill Purple.
