‘THAT EVENING SUN'7 p.m., UA Breckenridge. $20.
After jumping from film festival to film festival last year and racking up the Audience Choice Award for Best Feature at SXSW and the Golden Rock at our Little Rock Film Festival, “That Evening Sun”
returns for a special engagement at the UA Breckenridge theater. An adaptation of a William Gay short story, the movie concerns itself with a widowed ex-farmer on the run from a nursing home and the occupant of his former farm, an obstinate, malicious, white-trash rube. The screening will be followed by a discussion with the filmmakers, including local actor Ray McKinnon, who was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for his work in the movie, and a reception at Oyster Bar. Stay for the food, go for the awesome character names (Abner Meecham, Lonzo Choat, Thurl Chessor). Tickets are $20 and available at the Chamber of Commerce office and website. The screening is part of the Arkansas Film Series; all proceeds benefit the Little Rock and Arkansas Film Commissions' efforts to attract filmmaking in Arkansas. “That Evening Sun” opens to wider release to Central Arkansas on Friday.
