Quid Pro Quo

Visitors to the Walker Art Center may get a glimpse of what it’s like to be a "wannabe" (people who voluntarily want to get amputations) when a First Look premiere of the new film Quid Pro Quo screens on Friday, June 6. Hailed by Variety as "strikingly original and provocative" when it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, this darkly comic romantic thriller stars Nick Stahl as a wheelchair-bound radio personality who meets a mysterious woman (Vera Farmiga) while researching a story about the "wannabe" subculture. Producer Sarah Pillsbury will be present at the event, which will include a post-screening discussion. Tickets are $12 for the general public and $8 for Walker members.
