Natural Selection -- June Cineclub Screening
dir. Robbie Pickering
Linda White (brilliantly played by Rachael Harris), a barren Christian housewife, leads a sheltered existence in suburban Texas. Her world is turned upside-down when she discovers that her dying husband, Abe, has a 23-year old illegitimate son named Raymond living in Florida. Somewhere on the edge of guilt and loneliness, Linda grants Abe's final wish and sets off on a quixotic journey to find Raymond and bring him back before her husband passes away. Along the way, Linda's wonderfully bizarre relationship with Raymond will teach her more about herself than she ever imagined possible and force her to come to terms with her troubled past. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize for Best Narrative Feature at the 2011 SXSW Film Festival, Natural Selection features a memorable breakout performance from Rachael Harris, perhaps best known for supporting comedic roles in films like The Hangover, Best in Show, and For Your Consideration. Showtime is at 8pm, and as always tickets are $10, or $6 for a/v society members. See you there!
"Insightful. Touching. Funny. Rachael Harris is wonderful." -- Roger Ebert
