Special screening of Blue Ruin with Director
Director Q&A scheduled! Post party hosted by Fandor with drinks at Cullen’s Irish Pub!
What has been called “The most suspenseful film of the year” by IndieWire opens on Friday, May 2nd, 2014 at the Music Box Theatre with a very special screening at 7:00pm featuring an introduction and discussion with Chicago Critic Steve Prokopy of AintItCool.com and film Director Jeremy Saulnier.
Following the Q&A there will be a reception at Cullen’s Bar and Grill (3741 N. Southport Ave) sponsored by Fandor where the first 100 people to trade their film tickets in will receive a free drink!
With his second feature film, writer/director Jeremy Saulnier creates a classic American revenge story, crackling with sudden violence and black humor. The film maintains an impressive edge-of-your-seat pace through the script’s surprising twists and turns and the efficient work of editor Julia Bloch. Beyond the thrills, Saulnier grounds the film’s humanity in the captivating eyes of lead actor Macon Blair, which never lose the burning intensity of righteous duty and overpowering fear.
BLUE RUIN will continue through May 8th with additional screenings at the Music Box Theatre. Director Jeremy Saulnier is only scheduled to appear at the opening night screening. Get your tickets now! For a full list of showtimes please visit our SHOWTIMES page or to purchase tickets for other screenings, please click HERE
(Including Q&A and admission to the post show reception at Cullen’s)
directed by Jeremy Saulnier starring Macon Blair, Devin Ratray, Amy Hargreaves in English
A beach bum finds his quiet life upended by dreadful news and sets off for his childhood home to carry out an act of revenge.
Blue Ruin is a classic American revenge story that recently won the FIPRESCI International Critics Prize at the Cannes Film Festival where it screened in the Directors’ Fortnight. The film follows a mysterious outsider whose quiet life is turned upside down when he returns to his childhood home to carry out an act of vengeance. Proving himself an amateur assassin, he winds up in a brutal fight to protect his estranged family.
The most suspenseful American film of the year: sudden, terrifying, and excitingly singular.
