Opening June 16th in NY; June 23rd in LA and Nationally June 30th
An IFC Films Release

Directed by Patrick Creadon, WORDPLAY takes the
audience into the orbit of Will Shortz, Crossword editor
at The New York Times. Shortz has spent his entire life
studying, creating, and editing puzzles, and has built a
huge following including die-hard fans President Bill Clinton,
Senator Bob Dole, "The Daily Show's" Jon Stewart,
filmmaker Ken Burns, the Indigo Girls, and Yankee's ace
pitcher Mike Mussina. WORDPLAY also introduces us to
world-class solvers and follows them to Stamford, CT as
they compete against nearly five hundred other
rossword fanatics at the 28th Annual American
Crossword Puzzle Tournament (ACPT). Whether
you’re a Monday-only solver or a Saturday
“brain-busting” wizard, you’re sure to enjoy your
very own “A-ha!” moment when you
experience WORDPLAY.
