Local Screenwriter Premieres Film

Posted By on Thu, Apr 15, 2010 at 2:41 PM

Husband-and-wife moviemakers Bill Briles and Aleta Douroudian will be screening their film Reck and Ima today at Crossroads Grand Cinemas. See film times below.

This is Briles' second film. His first, Romance at Frisky's Bar, was released two years ago and is on Netflix. Both of his films focus on the struggle of finding that special mate.

Here's a summary from Briles' press release:

Reck, a 43-year-old Southern boy chases Ima, the love of this life, to Tucson, Arizona. While making a pizza delivery, he runs into Brent Thomas, a university student doing a research study on social rejects—or as young Mr. Thomas puts it, "the lives of losers." Reck, Ima and their rag-tag friends are enlisted for the study, but things get interesting when Lorris Patterson, a classmate of Brent, who disagrees with his thesis, secretly teaches "the losers" how to become "winners." Reck, throught the adventure, strives to win the heart of Ima.

The cast and crew of the film all reside in Tucson and the surrounding area. Visit reckandima.com for more information.
