Dir. Patrik-Ian Polk, 2013, 102 min
FRIDAY | March 14 | 7:30pm | Egyptian Theatre (Rigler)
A high school senior named Randy (Newcomer Julian Walker) and his band of queer friends fight for a life outside the constrictions of their small Southern town in Blackbird, a powerful film co-starring Academy Award winner Mo'nique (Precious) and Gotham Award nominee Isaiah Washington (Blue Caprice). Black, white, straight, gay and all things in between, these friends discover firsthand both the rewards and consequences of growing up as outsiders. The film reminds us that being a teenager is always hard, even when life tells you being young should be carefree and easy. Its ensemble of young actors make an impact, as do Mo'nique and Washington as Randy's conflicted parents.
Join us for a Pre-Reception in the lobby from 6:00pm - 7:30pm hosted by Absolut and Stella Artois.
