This not-yet-seen-in-theatres film has a
dream cast: Adrien Brody, Illeana
Douglas, Milla Jovovich, Ron Liebman,
and more! And it is simultaneously funny
and touching.

Adrien Brody (The Pianist) plays soft-spoken Steven,
who turns to ventriloquism and a wooden compan-
ion for solace. Cringingly funny with a tender heart,
this film features a wealth of eccentric characters for
whom the constant presence of a talking wooden
doll is one of the less strange occurrences. Dummy ,
focuses on how the doll is able to build Steven's 41
con '
fidence and help his bumbling romantic efforts.. •

Still living at home, Steven is jobless and approach-
ing 30. His only friend is an old school chum, the
manic Milla Jovovich who fronts her own punk band
and harbors dreams of becoming a star. (There's
punk rock klezmer music—really!) Away from his
mocking family, Steven hones his
?too craft till his hobby becomes his pro-
fession following a meeting with his
pretty career advisor, Lorena. And
IBE it's her affection he tries to win using
PND ARTISTS the dummy for support.

Architecture is unique in that the products of a
lifetime often endure for centuries. This new film
documents the life of an artist and the search by
his son to discover the father he barely knew.

Louis I. Kahn (1901-1974) died bankrupt and alone in
Penn Station. His body lay unclaimed for three days until
it was established that it was, indeed, the remains of
one of the greatest architects of the second half of the
20th century. Nathaniel Kahn, writer, director; interview-
er and narrator is Louis' youngest child. At Kahn's funer-
al his wife and daughter had to face the existence of
two other families—two illegitimate children born to two
different mistresses. "On this journey, "Nathaniel muses,
"my father became real to me . and after all these
years, I think I found the right time and place to say
goodbye." Nathaniel Kahn has been invited to
04GIIEN9-11‘G attend in Ann Arbor.
