Grad student falls for older man at Little Theatre

Feb. 25, 2008

KALAMAZOO--The Kalamazoo Film Society presents "Starting Out in the Evening" Friday through Sunday, March 7-9, in the Little Theatre at Western Michigan University. Frank Langella and Lauren Ambrose star in Andrew Wagner's film about a graduate student who falls for a much older man.

Show times 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.

This dramatic character study tells the story of an aging, reclusive writer (Langella) who's spent the last 10 years working on his fifth and final novel. The author's insular world is changed when an adoring graduate student (Ambrose) chooses his work as the subject of her thesis. As the student's admiration for her new friend deepens, she begins to take a romantic interest in him.

"Starting Out in the Evening" is shown in English. The 2007 film has a run time of 111 minutes and is rated PG-13 for sexual content, offensive language and brief nudity.

The Little Theatre is located at the corner of Oakland Drive and Oliver Street on WMU's East Campus. Free off-street parking is available behind the theatre.
