Academy Award nominee James Franco (127 Hours), New York Times bestselling author David Shields (Reality Hunger), and failed artist Caleb Powell collaborate to create an unusually raw, risky, brave, provocative film, I Think You’re Totally Wrong: A Quarrel. The buddy movie to end all buddy movies. My Dinner with André, with more urgency. The Trip, without the four-star meals. Sideways, minus the profound antipathy toward Merlot.

On the first day of shooting, Shields and Powell throw out the script when a real-life, real-time argument erupts, with Powell threatening to storm off the set and shut down the movie over what can and can’t be used. Franco is unwillingly dragged into the scene to mediate the quarrel and, ultimately, help to save the film.

Very loosely adapted from the widely acclaimed book of the same name (“Outrageously entertaining”—Boston Globe), I Think You’re Totally Wrong is a thrilling and hilarious debate about what matters more, life or art. Or beer.

“More than a deconstruction of the buddy film, I Think You’re Totally Wrong assails the divisions between reality and fiction, documentary and life, with subversive glee.” – DOXA Documentary Film Festival
