Cinema41: The Rage in Placid Lake

Although the title gives the impression that this is a horror movie, this is, instead, a comic coming-of-age story from Australia in which a bohemian teenager opts for a normal life after high school and consequently drives his family and friends nuts. Doors open at 7pm for preshow drinks, and the screening will be followed by a Skype interview with Ben Lee.

8PM, Salvage Vanguard Theater, 2803 Manor Rd.
