"American Teen" won the Best Director/Documentary award at the Sundance Film Festival.

Shot in Warsaw, Indiana, it follows a group of teens through senior year of high school. Rolling Stone's critic said, "If 'The Hills' went back to high school and developed wit, perception and a conscience, it might play something like Nanette Burstein's wallop of a doc."

"American Teen" is also the latest IBJ Night at the Movies.

Want to join us for this sneak preview? Just tell me what day and time my A&E preview airs on Fox 59 (hint: you can find the answer at www.ibj.com/arts). Be one of the first to drop me an e-mail with the answer to lharry@ibj.com and you'll get a pair of tickets. Supplies are limited, so act quickly.

The screening is Thursday, Aug. 14, at 7:30 at Keystone Art Cinemas. As always, a ticket doesn't guarantee a seat so you'll need to arrive early.

  • Just saw the movie American Teen and it is quite good--very good portrayal of life in High School and the trauma of being a teenager. I recommend this for all ages although the language and actions of teens are quite accurate and not for young viewers. The adults in the theater loved the video--and I think the teens did as well. I'm so glad I'm no longer a teen! Those were NOT the good old days.
  • Thanks HS.
    Look for more comments here the day after our screening.

  1. How can any company that has the cash and other assets be allowed to simply foreclose and not pay the debt? Simon, pay the debt and sell the property yourself. Don't just stiff the bank with the loan and require them to find a buyer.

  2. If you only knew....

  3. The proposal is structured in such a way that a private company (who has competitors in the marketplace) has struck a deal to get "financing" through utility ratepayers via IPL. Competitors to BlueIndy are at disadvantage now. The story isn't "how green can we be" but how creative "financing" through captive ratepayers benefits a company whose proposal should sink or float in the competitive marketplace without customer funding. If it was a great idea there would be financing available. IBJ needs to be doing a story on the utility ratemaking piece of this (which is pretty complicated) but instead it suggests that folks are whining about paying for being green.

  4. The facts contained in your post make your position so much more credible than those based on sheer emotion. Thanks for enlightening us.

  5. Please consider a couple of economic realities: First, retail is more consolidated now than it was when malls like this were built. There used to be many department stores. Now, in essence, there is one--Macy's. Right off, you've eliminated the need for multiple anchor stores in malls. And in-line retailers have consolidated or folded or have stopped building new stores because so much of their business is now online. The Limited, for example, Next, malls are closing all over the country, even some of the former gems are now derelict.Times change. And finally, as the income level of any particular area declines, so do the retail offerings. Sad, but true.
