Director Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don’t Cry) will appear at the University of Chicago’s Max Palevsky Auditorium on Wednesday, February 27, for a free preview screening of her new feature, Stop-Loss. The movie stars Ryan Phillippe, Channing Tatum, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Iraq war veterans trying to adjust after they return to their small Texas community. Before they can get settled, though, Tatum and Phillippe are called back for another tour of duty. A Q & A with Peirce, who graduated from the university in 1990, follows the screening. The Palevsky Auditorium is located at 1212 E. 59th Street in Hyde Park; to RSVP call 312-840-7966.
