Saturday is the premiere of a movie I have been waiting for since I first heard it was being made...
From the book jacket:
Victor Mancini, a medical-school dropout, is an antihero for our deranged times. Needing to pay elder care for his mother, Victor has devised and ingenious scam: he pretends to choke on pieces for food while dining in upscale restaurants. He then allows himself to be "saved" by fellow patrons who, feeling responsible for Victor's life, go on to send checks to support him. When he's not pulling this stunt, Victor cruised sexual addiction recovery workshops for action, visits his addled mom, and spends his days working at a colonial theme park. His creator, Chuck Palahniuk (Fight Club), is the visionary we need and the satirist we deserve.
There are several trailers on YouTube but the one on the actual website is the best - www.chokeonthis.net - so be sure and check it out!
