Opening at The Ross on Friday, March 2, IN THE FADE proves Diane Kruger is more than up to the task of carrying a movie -- even if the end result doesn't quite live up to her remarkable work. IN THE FADE was awarded the Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film and Diane Kruger won the Cannes Award for Best Actress. To say that the many parts of "IN THE FADE" are held together by Kruger would be an understatement. As a cocktail of grief, fury and regret, [Dianne Kruger is] a remarkably original protagonist. –Jake Coyle, Associated Press Akin was inspired to tell the story by real-life political events in Germany, and his skills as a filmmaker are such that escape from this unsettling film is not in the cards. –Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times IN THE FADE boasts an assured sense of style and a meticulously constructed script. Moments that initially appear to be asides turn out to be essential, and the final scenes of the first two chapters are vivid and startling. –Mark Jenkins, NPR IN THE FADE is showing at the Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center on Friday, March 2 through Thursday, March 8. Show times are available at www.TheRoss.org, by consulting your newspaper, or by calling the MRRMAC film information line at 402.472.5353. The Motion Picture Association of America has rated IN THE FADE R (for some disturbing images, drug use, and language including sexual references). This program is being presented with the support of the Nebraska Arts Council and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment. Out of nowhere, Katja’s life falls apart when her husband Nuri and little son Rocco are killed in a bomb attack. Her friends and family try to give her the support she needs, and Katja somehow manages to make it through the funeral. But the mind numbing search for the perpetrators and reasons behind the senseless killing complicate Katja’s painful mourning, opening wounds and doubts. Danilo, a lawyer and Nuri’s best friend, represents Katja in the eventual trial against the two suspects: a young couple from the neo-Nazi scene. The trial pushes Katja to the edge, but there’s simply no alternative for her: she wants justice.
