Facing the facts

How much does Hollywood fictionalize true events in films? Get an idea tonight, when real-life detective Richie Roberts (played by Russell Crowe in “American Gangster”) recounts his crime-fighting story and how it inspired the Oscar-nominated film. The discussion begins at 8 p.m. at the Sixth & I Historic Synagogue (600 I St. NW) Tickets ($18 to $25) are available through Ticketmaster or on-site. Call 202/408-3100 or visit www.sixthandi.org.
