'Frozen River' actress Melissa Leo hits Brandeis
Brandeis film buffs are in a tizzy over actor Mark Ruffalo's scheduled appearance and sneak peek of his made-in-Southie flick "What Doesn't Kill You" on Saturday, Nov. 15.
But don't forget veteran actress Melissa Leo. The performer is slotted to unleash her buzzworthy performance in "Frozen River" on Thursday, Nov. 13 starting at 7 p.m.
In "Frozen River," Leo plays Ray Eddy, an upstate New York mom pushed to the financial edge and finds herself lured into the world of illegal immigrant smuggling.
The screening of "Frozen River" with Leo is free and open to the public but Brandeis' film students get preferential seating at the Edie and Lew Wasserman Cinematheque, 415 South St. in Waltham.
