Academy Award nominee Michael Shannon is bringing his directorial debut, “Eric LaRue,” to Little Rock for a special screening during Filmland 2023. He will be joined by his long-time collaborator, Jeff Nichols.


Starring Judy Greer, Alexander Skarsgård, Alison Pill and more, “Eric LaRue” is a film about two parents seeking solace in rival religious congregations during the aftermath of a shocking crime at the hands of their son.


“Michael Shannon and Jeff Nichols have a powerful creative partnership that spans almost two decades, having collaborated on eight films to date. We are beyond excited to see them talk from this new perspective, peer-to-peer as directors, with Michael Shannon’s directorial debut. We are so thankful to Filmland for this special opportunity,” said producers Sarah Green, Karl Hartman and Jina Panebianco.


The screening and Q&A will be held at CALS Ron Robinson Theater on Saturday, Oct. 14 at 7 p.m. There will be an after party held at Cache.
