An Evening with David Fincher
Director David Fincher is best known for his feature film work, which includes The Social Network, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (he received Best Director Oscar nominations for both), Fight Club, The Game, Seven, and, most recently, his adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. His introduction to television drama is the U.S. adaptation of the BBC miniseries House of Cards, produced exclusively for Netflix. In this thirteen-episode miniseries, Fincher served as executive producer and directed the first two episodes. Kevin Spacey stars as House Majority Whip Francis Underwood. House of Cards shows the real seat of power in the U.S. legislative branch of government—and eventually, the executive branch, as well. Underwood, who leads by charm, guile, and occasionally sheer ruthlessness, breaks the fourth wall to keep us abreast—but not ahead—of his motives. Robin Wright costars as Frank’s equally skilled wife, Claire, who finds that her own mission may take on other roads. Fincher assembled a talented group of actors (Corey Stoll, Kate Mara, Michael Kelly, Constance Zimmer, and Kristen Connolly) and filmmakers (James Foley, Carl Franklin, Joel Schumacher, and Allen Coulter) to bring this operatic political drama to life.
