Irreverent, touching and funny, Let Go is an award-winning ensemble comedy that follows the intertwining stories of four individuals — a parole officer and three ex-convicts. A Ridgefield Playhouse Film Society Lost and Found Film Series event, Let Go will be screened at the Playhouse on Wednesday, June 17, at 7:30 p.m. Produced, written and directed by Brian Jett, the film stars Ed Asner, Kevin Hart, David Denman and Gillian Jacobs. Seven-time Emmy Award-winning actor Ed Asner will be on hand for a Q&A following the screening. Asner is best known for his comedic and dramatic crossover as the gruff but softhearted journalist Lou Grant, the role he originated on the landmark television newsroom comedy “The Mary Tyler Moore Show”. Lou Grant’s story continued in the newspaper-set drama “Lou Grant”, which earned Asner five Emmys and three Golden Globe Awards, making him one of the few television actors to portray the same leading character in both a comedy and a drama. He received two additional Emmy and Golden Globe Awards for the mini-series “Rich Man, Poor Man” and “Roots” Joining Asner for the Q&A is writer/director Brian Jett; Emmy Award-winning journalist Ira Joe Fisher will host.
