My Din­ner With Hervé

The Week (US) - - 24 Arts -

You know him as the well-dressed dwarf who shouted “De plane! De plane!” dur­ing the open­ing cred­its of Fan­tasy Is­land. But Hervé Vil­lechaize was much more than a 1970s TV side­kick. This rol­lick­ing drama cap­tures Vil­lechaize’s tur­bu­lent last days be­fore his 1993 sui­cide, when he agreed to a rare in­ter­view and took the young jour­nal­ist on a wild emo­tional ride. That writer, Sacha Ger­vasi, wrote and di­rected this film, and his char­ac­ter is played here by Fifty Shades of Grey’s Jamie Dor­nan. Golden Globe win­ner Peter Din­klage is Vil­lechaize, and he scorches the screen. Satur­day, Oct. 20, at 8 p.m., HBO
