EAU CLAIRE — "Insomnia," a 1997 film noir that critic Roger Ebert called "one of the most absorbing and disturbing crime stories I've seen in a long time," will be presented Nov. 18-21 at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
The International Film Society will screen the 1997 Norwegian thriller (subtitled in English) at 6 and 8:30 p.m. Thursday through Sunday in Davies Theatre.
Erik Skjoldbjaerg's debut feature stars Stellan Skarsgard ("Breaking the Waves," "Good Will Hunting") as a disgraced Swedish detective who travels to northern Norway to solve a brutal murder. Unable to sleep in the land of the midnight sun, he quickly loses his grip on the case — and on reality.
The 97-minute film will screen via DVD projection.
Tickets are $2 for International Film Society members and UW-Eau Claire faculty/staff, or $1 for UW-Eau Claire students, at the University Service Center, (715) 836-3727.
