KFS presents Sundance winner "Brick"

July 24, 2006

KALAMAZOO--"Brick," winner of the 2005 Sundance Film Festival Special Jury Prize, will be shown Friday through Sunday, July 28-30, in the Little Theatre at Western Michigan University.

Kalamazoo Film Society show times for "Brick" are 7 and 9:30 p.m. Friday; 4:30, 7 and 9:30 p.m. Saturday; and 2:30 and 5 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $5 and $3 for students. The film is rated R for drug content and violence.

"Brick" stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Lukas Haas and Emilie de Ravin. It is the story of an intelligent high-school loner, played by Gordon-Levitt, who finds himself in a menacing world when he investigates his ex-girlfriend's disappearance. While paying homage to film noir classics, "Brick" is also gritty and contemporary. One reviewer called "Brick" "a small masterpiece that's perfectly strange and strangely perfect." The film was a nominee for the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Festival and won a Special Jury Prize for "originality of vision."

The Little Theatre is located at the corner of Oakland Drive and Oliver Street on WMU's historic East Campus. There is free off-street parking behind the theatre. For more information, call the movie line at (269) 387-8221, or visit KFS at www.kalfilmsociety.net,
