Wednesday To-Do: 'Love Guru' sneak-peek

‘THE LOVE GURU'
7 p.m., Breckenridge 12. Free-$25.

In the Little Rock Film Festival's quest to stay involved with the community, organizers have announced that they plan to screen narrative features and documentaries year-round. To kick off the series, together with the Little Rock Film Commission and the Arkansas Film Commission, the LRFF presents a sneak-peek of the new Mike Myers comedy, “The Love Guru.” The Arkansas connection, as LRFF-goers know, is Graham Gordy, the screenwriter behind festival favorite “War Eagle, Arkansas.” Gordy, a Conway native, studied playwriting at New York University and met Myers through his then-wife, who'd happened on one of his screenplays. Myers had recently lost his longtime writing partner, the two had similar sensibilities and soon they started sketching out a character based on Myers' impression of Deepak Chopra. The result, co-written and associate-produced by Gordy, is “The Love Guru,” starring Myers as an American-born, India-raised self-help guru, who travels to Canada to assist a hockey player whose romantic troubles seem to be adversely affecting his game. Jessica Alba, Verne Troyer (Austin Powers' Mini-Me) and, promisingly, Justin Timberlake also star. Gordy will attend the Arkansas premiere and participate in a Q&A after the film. An after-party at Lilly's Dim Sum Then Some will follow. 

Tickets for the after-party, which guarantees you a seat, are available here. If you don't care about the after-party, you can see the movie for free, assuming that enough after-party ticket holders don't crowd you out.
