MISSOULA — It’s been described as “a haunting vision of vengeful obsession” by The Hollywood Reporter, and so far, critics are loving it.
It’s the release of the movie “Ted K” – a movie shot mostly in Montana that tells the story of what infamous Unabomber, Ted Kaczynski was up to while hiding in his Lincoln-area cabin.
It was there that FBI agents finally caught him in the spring of 1996 after a 17-year manhunt.
The film stars Sharlto Copley as Kaczynski, the man who took a violent turn against modern society.
“Ted K” plays at the Roxy Theater in Missoula starting Friday and aside from this local “horror story” of an anti-tech terrorist, the film also has plenty of local talent that is either “on screen” either worked ‘Behind the scenes.’
The film’s release might be small, but local interest in the film probably won’t.
“A movie like this appeals to audiences in Missoula because movies made in Montana appeal to us because we want to see what the state looks like on film and how the characters are portrayed and it’s likely that people who will come to see the film know someone who involved either the making of the film or the story itself,” said Mike Steinberg, executive director of the Roxy Theater.
