In Stone, Edward Norton plays the incarcerated title character, up for parole after serving eight years for arson. Robert DeNiro plays the churchgoing caseworker Jack Mabry, responsible for recommending Stone's release to the parole board. Thrust into this match-up of acting with a capital A is Stone's wife (Milla Jovovich), who muddies the moral waters by seducing Mabry to win support for her husband.
Expect a throwdown of religious/moral/legal implications in which no one is really who they seem, and "crime" is a fuzzy word at best. (Wow, maybe we should get a job in promo writing.)
That said, we have 15 free passes to a special screening of Stone on Wednesday, October 20, 7:30 p.m., at AMC Studio 30 (Dunvale). Each pass is good for two tickets.
