This event has now passed.

They’ve gone and done it, folks. Hollywood has made a movie about making... A dictionary. It sounds like an absolute bore, and the forced camaraderie in the trailer doesn’t help. That aside, we would have never thought the first Oxford English Dictionary was made with the combined minds of an Oxford professor and a Yale madman, played by veteran actors Mel Gibson and Sean Penn, respectively. The true story showcases their friendship and the hardships of putting every English word known to man in a book. On top of that, one of them is in an asylum. Interesting.
