Virginia Minnesota Among Programming Staff Favorites for MSPIFF 2018

Twin Cities native Craig Rice helped select this year’s MSPIFF films.

Colin Covert – April 6th, 2018

We asked Craig Rice and the other programmers of the Minneapolis St. Paul International Film Festival to list a few of the movies they’re most excited about seeing. Here are their picks.

“Virginia Minnesota,” director Daniel Stine’s satirical road trip yarn shot around Lake Superior, is among this year’s crop of what Rice calls “really strong films from Minnesota.” Aurora Perrineau and Rachel Hendrix co-star as former residents of a school for girls from troubled families who reunite for the reading of the late owner’s will. Full of bickering comic dialogue, the film touches on serious issues along the way. “Those actresses!” Rice gushed. “It’s a really great story about young women revealing themselves.” (Stine will attend.)
