John Cusack Coming To Michigan For Grosse Pointe Blank Screening
I don't know about you but Groose Pointe Blank is one of my favorite movies and not because it takes place in Michigan. High Fidelity is also one of the greatest movies of all time. John Cusack has lost a little cache over the years but he's one of my favorites. I was told a story many years ago that he came to a Halloween party dressed as himself in one of his movies. Cool? Or not? Anyway, he's coming back to Detroit.
According to metrotimes.com, John Cusack will visit the Masonic Cathedral Theatre on Friday, April 24, at 7 p.m. for a screening of Grosse Pointe Blank. In the film, Cusack plays a hitman who returns home to go to his 10-year high school reunion — as well as to rekindle an old flame. Following the screening, Cusack will be available for a Q&A, during which he’s expected to touch upon what it was like to make the film. It's all part of the Freep Film Festival, which is in its seventh year. The festival runs April 22-26, will take place in Detroit and the surrounding suburbs, and will feature documentaries that have a tie to Detroit and Michigan. More than 70 screenings and events are expected to take place in and around Detroit.
