Writer-director Raymond De Felitta (Nicholl '91) saw his TWO FAMILY HOUSE receive the dramatic Audience Award at the recently completed Sundance Film Festival. This marks the first time a film screened in the noncompetitive American Spectrum festival segment has won an audience award.

Jeffrey Eugenides (N '86) saw the American premiere of Sofia Coppola's adaptation of his novel THE VIRGIN SUICIDES.

Ehren Kruger (N '96) has two films he wrote opening in February -- SCREAM 3 on Friday and REINDEER GAMES on the 24th. He also wrote the production draft of TEXAS RANGERS, which is slated to open later this year.

Susannah Grant (N '92) has two films slated for Spring release -- ERIN BROCKOVICH and 28 DAYS.

Randall McCormick (N '87) is the co-writer of Fox's animated epic TITAN A.E., which is supposed to open in the Summer.
