About the Film
In the winter of 1944, American soldiers led by Will Knott (Ethan Hawke) are assigned to capture a small squad of German soldiers posted in France’s Ardennes forest. Tired of war, the Americans have already lost half their division and discover that their German enemy is equally unwilling to fight. With Jewish soldier Stan Shutzer (Arye Gross) interpreting, the Germans and Americans agree on a plan that will let the former surrender without violence — but then, tragedy strikes. Also starring Gary Sinise, Kevin Dillion and Peter Berg.
“A Midnight Clear” was shot entirely in and around Park City, including inside the current Park City Library building. Post film panel discussion will include producer Bill Borden and Leigh von der Esch, former Utah Film Commissioner. Larry Warren, former GM of KPCW, will moderate.
