Synopsis Proving that he's more than just a pretty, funny face, THE OFFICE's John Krasinski gets credit as writer and director in this adaptation of a David Foster Wallace novel. Julianne Nicholson (LAW & ORDER: SVU) stars as Sara Quinn, an anthropology grad student who attempts to dissect a recent breakip with her knowledge of human behavior and interviews with a number of men. BRIEF INTERVIEWS WITH HIDEOUS MEN also stars Bobby Cannavale, Josh Charles, Deathcab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard, Christopher Meloni, and Timothy Hutton.Krasinski definitely emerges as a talent to watch...Not since IN THE COMPANY OF MEN has the male gender been so ruthlessly portrayed on screen....Ingeniously structured and beautifully acted...In his debut as screenwriter and director, John Krasinski shows promise. Adapting the writings of David Foster Wallace, he moves the piece sharply along and finds interesting theatrical presentations for talky, intellectual material.Krasinski preserves Wallace's whooshing roller coasters of words, powered by the fuel of confession. -- Grade: B-
