    Zooey Deschanel and Paul Dano in Gigantic.

    Call us predictable, but we fall for Zoeey Deschanel's artsy-ingenue appeal every time. So naturally we're excited to hear that 92YTribeca has a screening of her new film Gigantic next Wednesday April 1, two days before it hits theaters in limited release.

    The chatty romantic tale stars Paul "There Will Be Blood" Dano as a Brooklyn mattress salesman who falls for one of his customers (Zooey Deschanel), and everything is June-moon-spoon between them until he spooks her with the news that he's 1) about to become a single dad by 2) adopting a Chinese baby. Alright, then. (Check out the trailer here.)

    We've been looking forward to this one since it got strong buzz at the Toronto Film Fest last September. Director Matt Aselton will be at the screening for a Q&A, along with Dano himself. Wed. 4/1, 7:30PM, 92YTribeca, 200 Hudson Street; 212-601-1000.
