Festival presents the dramatic comedy 50/50 with Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
The movie will show at the Nugget Theater at 8:30pm. Seth Rogen is hilarious and I can't picture Gordon-Levitt in anything but Terminator 2... but this actually looks like a really good movie. Kind of a dry, feel-good comedy. Should be a great
