Hardin County will host the first U.S. screening of "Elizabethtown," director Cameron Crowe's nod to his Kentucky roots
"Elizabethtown," the film starring Orlando Bloom and Kirsten Dunst, will have its first premiere in Hardin County, director Cameron Crowe confirmed. The film follows the story of Drew, Bloom's role, whose father dies while visiting family in Kentucky. While flying home, he meets Dunst's character Claire, an airline hostess.
"Elizabethtown" reportedly will debut at an invitation-only screening on Sept. 17 at Movie Palace in Elizabethtown, with Crowe attending. Soon thereafter, the film will be shown again in Louisville later that night, and Bloom is planning to attend. In time "Elizabethtown" is scheduled to be released in mid-October.
