There's no nice way to put it: Matt Ross plays a jerk on TV.
But the same guy who makes Gavin Belson so mean on HBO's "Silicon Valley" is the writer and director of the warm-hearted film "Captain Fantastic," wowing audiences from Cannes to Ashland.
Which, by the way, is where Matt Ross went to high school. Ashland, not Cannes.
He comes back home for a screening of his film in a benefit event for the Ashland Independent Film Festival (Tuesday, August 23rd).
