Before Lara Croft, before MR. & MRS. SMITH, even before GIRL, INTERRUPTED, Angelina Jolie came to Portland to appear in one of her earliest films. She makes a dramatic entrance to save Rilo Kiley’s Jenny Lewis from a predatory high school teacher in this poignant adaptation of Joyce Carol Oates’ story. Suspended after a handwritten note goes viral in the pre-Tik Tok days, Jolie’s Legs Sadovsky brings together a disparate group of young women in an abandoned house in mid 1990’s Portland.

Needless to say, Oregon is still attractive and a great place to bring your creative production.
