Twin Cities film fans have a unique opportunity on tap. For one night only, a group of local actors will present a staged reading of "Flag Day." It's a screenplay based on Minneapolis writer Jennifer Vogel's award-winning memoir "Flim Flam Man."
The book explores Vogel's relationship with her father John, a felon on the run, accused of counterfeiting $20 million. Vogel describes how she came to see deep flaws in the man she once idolized.
Accomplished British screenwriter Jez Butterworth wrote the screenplay. Butterworth had to cancel his travels here because of work on another script. However the film's producer Bill Horberg will be at the reading. Horberg made "Cold Mountain" and "The Talented Mr. Ripley."
Jennifer Vogel admitted to Minnesota Public Radio's Euan Kerr she's already heard the script once.
