See This: 'How to Tell You're a Douchebag' at the MFA

Love and war.


Thanks to the title, there’s no hiding how the audience is supposed to feel about the leading man in How to Tell You’re a Douchebag. Writer/director Tahir Jetter’s feature film debut premiered at Sundance and follows Ray, a womanizing Brooklyn blogger who vents his misogynistic views, mansplains street harassment and shares his (self-perpetuated) dating woes. When one of those woes leads to a heated Twitter battle with a woman named Rochelle, malicious blog posts and tweets are fired—and a romance is sparked.  Catch the film’s one-night stand at the MFA as part of the Roxbury International Film Festival on June 25.  / Jennifer Usovicz
