Absolute Josh Hartnett

The premiere fan-managed social network for Josh! Founded December 26, 1998

Locally shot comedy opens next weekend. No, not THAT one, the other one.

Though it has been overshadowed by the homecoming hoopla surrounding the Coen brothers' "A Serious Man," the indie comedy "Nobody," also opens here this Friday. Hometown boosters will be pleased to know that the plucky underdog film has plenty of Minnesota connections, too.
It's co-written and directed by Minneapolis filmmaker Rob Perez (screenwriter of the Josh Hartnett celibacy comedy "40 Days and 40 Nights.")
Twin Cities actor Sam Rosen stars as an art student trying to find himself in the confusing swirl of postgraduate life, passing himself off as an intellectual, a Goth and a vegan.
Because "no one in Hollywood was excited to finance a movie starring Sam Rosen," Perez notes, the film was produced with Minnesota money.
St. Paul native Hartnett and Werc Werk Works film financiers Christine Kunewa Walker and Elizabeth Redleaf stepped up with the cash.
Local actors Emily Gunyou Hallas, Nathan Shrake, Ryan Lindberg and Tyler Jensen feature prominently.
So do MCAD, Porky’s, the Minneapolis skyline, the chain of lakes and the Uptown Library.
The film rolls out 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, at the State Theatre, 805 Hennepin Ave. S., Minneapolis.
Tickets are priced at $16.50 and $26.50, with a limited number of tickets for the film and post-screening reception at the Envy night club, 400 1st. Av. N. Drinks and hors d'oeuvres with the in-crowd will set you back $86.50.
Too pricey? Never fear.
“Nobody” will open on Friday, October 2, 2009 at Kerasotes Block E Stadium 15 Theatre, 600 Hennepin Av., in Minneapolis.

And yes the price is crazy! I will probably wait & just rent or buy this movie & still have money left.

Appetizers, or basically little snacks (the fancy version of).

$86.50 for drinks and hors d'oeuvres?!? Are they out of their minds. At least if Josh was attending, I could understand. Thanks for posting Rasha.
