Roger Ebert comes to KC for EbertfestKC
Pulitzer Prize-winning film critic Roger Ebert joins the annual Off-the-Wall Film Series on Friday, May 21 for EbertfestKC, showing films or formats he believes deserve wider attention.
In A Simple Plan, director Sam Raimi elicits flawless performances from Bill Paxton and Bridget Fonda, who play a working class couple whose lives are hardly eased after stumbling into a found fortune. Ebert’s review: "Rarely is a film this skillful at drawing us, step by step, into the consequences of criminal action."
The film will be screened on the Rooftop Terrace of the Central Library at 8:45 pm. Film-goers are welcome to bring seating.
RSVP at the Kansas City Public Library
