“Ride with the Devil” to be Screened on November 19, 2010

“Ride With the Devil” (United States, 1999, 148 minutes, color, directed by Ang Lee) will be shown on Friday, November 19 at 7:30 p.m. in Page Hall, 135 Western Avenue, on the University at Albany’s downtown campus. Sponsored by the New York State Writers Institute, the screening is free and open to the public.

Ten years after its original release, Ang Lee reconstructs his vision for this quirky, ambitious Civil War epic in a new director’s cut. “Slant’s” Christian Blauvelt called it, “the most daring film Lee’s ever attempted, a rumination on identity‚Ķ that confounds many of our kneejerk assumptions about America’s bloodiest conflict.” The film stars Jeffrey Wright, Tobey Maguire, Skeet Ulrich, and Jewel.
