LAW ABIDING CITIZEN TO SCREEN IN PHILADELPHIA AT THE 18 1/2 PHILADELPHIA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL (Plus volunteer Information)
The 18 1/2 Philadelphia International Film Festival is excited to announce the selection of their films, but not as yet for running from October 15th through October 19th. These two stunning films join a dynamic schedule of 28 films assembled from over 14 countries, including the US. Law Abiding Citizen: Directed by F. Gary Gray, and starring Jamie Foxx, Gerard Butler, and Oscar-nominee Viola Davis, Law Abiding Citizen is a thriller about a brilliant sociopath who, ten years after his wife and daughter are brutally murdered, orchestrates a series of high-profile murders that grip the city of Philadelphia – all from inside his jail cell – and the assistant district attorney who prosecuted the case against their killers. His vengeance threatens not only the man who allowed mercy to supersede justice, but also the system and the city that made it so. Shot in Philadelphia, local movie lovers should rush to the theater not just for the brilliance of this film, but also to catch their possible 5 seconds of fame in one of the crowd scenes!
