Elizabeth Banks to attend Special Screening of Bill Pohlad’s Love & Mercy in Washington, DC

Star of Love & Mercy joins director Bill Pohlad and screenwriter Oren Moverman in support of mental health awareness

George Washington University hosts a special screening today of the highly acclaimed film Love & Mercy followed by a panel discussion featuring Ms. Banks, director Bill Pohlad, screenwriter Oren Moverman and Dr. Barbara Van Dahlen, President and Founder of Give an Hour. Panelists will discuss the making of the film and their partnership with the Campaign to Change Direction, a national initiative to change the culture of mental health in America.

Love & Mercy presents an unconventional portrait of Brian Wilson, the mercurial singer, songwriter and leader of The Beach Boys. Set against the era defining catalog of Wilson’s music, the film intimately examines the personal voyage and ultimate salvation of the icon whose success came at extraordinary personal cost.

The Campaign to Change Direction encourages Americans to care for their mental well-being just as they do their physical well-being. Led by Give an Hour, a national nonprofit organization providing free mental health services to the military and veteran community, Change Direction addresses common barriers to understanding mental health and raises awareness about the Five Signs that may indicate someone is suffering emotionally and needs help: change in personality, agitation, withdrawal, decline in personal care, and hopelessness.

The Campaign launched in March 2015 with First Lady Michelle Obama as the keynote speaker. Ms. Banks, Mr Pohlad and Mr Overman will join Dr. Barbara Van Dahlen for a meeting with White House officials on Thursday afternoon, October 22 to discuss the importance of film as a vehicle for changing the culture of mental health in America and to outline how their efforts will assist the Campaign to Change Direction.
