Story


"The Architect," starring Anthony Lapaglia in the title role along with Isabella Rossellini and Viola Davis, is a harrowing and ultimately human story of two very different families. Leo Waters (Lapaglia) is an idealistic architect and patriarch of an affluent, suburban Chicago family. Tonya Neeley (Davis) is a pragmatic activist who is trying to keep her family together while living in one of the city's most drug and crime-infested public housing projects. As part of her ongoing campaign to have the projects torn down and decent housing built in its place, Tonya decides that the one signature she needs more than any other on her petition is that of the projects' original architect, Leo Waters.

Based on David Greig's stage play of the same title, "The Architect" is written and directed by Matt Tauber.
