A coming-of-age film set in mid-1970s Savannah, the film will be presented at 6 and 8:30 p.m. Thursday through Sunday in Davies Theatre.

Emile Hirsch and Kieran Culkan star as two Catholic schoolboys who are fighting the perennial teenage battle against raging hormones, boredom and harsh teachers. The two create a comic of their superhero alter-egos fighting the evil nunzilla, a creature they base on their least-favorite teacher, Sister Assumpta (Jodie Foster). When the nun finds the artwork, the boys are faced with a path leading them to revenge that ultimately changes their lives.

Directed by Peter Care, the 104-minute film rated R for language, sexual content and youth substance use.

Admission is $2 for International Film Society members and UW-Eau Claire faculty and staff or $1 for UW-Eau Claire students. Tickets are available at the University Service Center, (715) 836-3727, in Davies Center's east lobby and at the door. The film is sponsored by the University Activities Commission of the UW-Eau Claire Student Senate.
