On the heels of a recent screening at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York, James Toback’s (“Black & White,” “Two Girls and a Guy”) latest dark comedy “Harvard Man” will be released by Cowboy Pictures, beginning this June 14th, 2002 in New York. The feature takes a look at the seductive power of vice:
Alan (Adrian Grenier) is a Harvard basketball student indulging in all of life’s more interesting vices — illicit sex, drugs and high-stakes gambling, with a little Heidegger thrown in for good measure. Tempted by cheerleader seductress/mob daughter Cindy Bandolini (Sarah Michelle Gellar), Alan gets in too deep and finds himself in danger of losing a lot more than his scholarship.
Director Toback, incidentally, is a Harvard grad himself. He was also nominated for an Academy Award for the screenplay for “Bugsy” in 1992.
More news on “Harvard Man” is in the works. Check in with the official Cowboy Pictures site in the next few days for the latest details.
