Chicago - Several months ahead of the big-screen release of Doonby, the psychological thriller from veteran movie producer Mark Joseph, the entertainment media is already talking about this provocative film.
Today (June 14), the filmmaker will bring his perspective on faith and the media, along with a special pre-release screening of Doonby, to the annual complimentary breakfast hosted by Christians in Communications for attendees of Cable Show 2011 in Chicago.
Doonby deals with provocative and controversial issues like abortion, and its cast includes Norma McCorvey, the real-life "Jane Roe" behind the Supreme Court's 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion. John Schneider (of Dukes of Hazzard and Smallville fame) brings all his grit and edginess to another challenging role. The movie also features Joe Estevez, brother of Martin Sheen.
Doonby tells the story about a mysterious stranger whose arrival in a small Texas community upsets its customary tranquility and leads to some disturbing and life-changing revelations for the townspeople.
The complimentary CIC breakfast is at 8 a.m. at Chicago's McCormick Place, Room S105ABC. Reservations are not required but arrive early as seating is limited.
