Six Week Film School: Classic Broadway Stage to Stylized Hollywood Screen

Austin (Gary Sinise), a Hollywood screenwriter living comfortably in suburban Arizona, is interrupted by the unexpected arrival of his prodigal brother Lee (John Malkovich), whose menacing demeanor and pugilistic attitude draws Austin further and further into conflict until he must finally engage his brother in an intense psychological battle for his ideals, and perhaps even his life. Directed by Allan A. Goldstein. FREE to attend. NR / 110 min.

The Six Week Film School is co-sponsored by Illinois State University's Department of English and the Normal Theater. Notes on this class screening can be found on our website by following this link.
