Spring 2004 Film Series
To Begin at UW-Eau Claire

 MAILED:  Jan. 22, 2004

EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire campus film series resumes for the spring semester with a screening of “The Boondock Saints” at 6 and 8:30 p.m. Thursday-Sunday, Jan. 29-Feb. 1 in Davies Theatre.

Fresh-faced Irish-American twins (Sean Patrick Flanery, Norman Reedus) are united in an ultra-violent mission from God — ridding Boston of gangsters, criminals and lowlifes. As the body count rises, the brothers became local heroes and draw the attention of an unorthodox FBI special agent (Willem Dafoe), who can’t seem to decide whether to arrest them or join them. “The peculiar mix of earnestness and machismo will not appeal to everyone, but it’s certainly unique and may acquire a cult following” (Bret Fetzer, Amazon.com). A sequel is in the works. UAC Films. U.S. 2000 • 110 minutes • Color • R. Directed by Troy Duffy.

Tickets for this and all the films listed below (except “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” with special ticket pricing described below) are $1 for University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire students and $2 for UW-Eau Claire faculty, staff, and members of the International Film Society. Tickets and IFS memberships are available at the University Service Center, (715) 836-3727.

Other spring semester films presented by the Universities Activities Commission of the UW-Eau Claire Senate and the International Film Society are listed below:
