“Ever since I can remember the Elm has been one of the go to theatres for great movies and refreshments,” said Justice Is Mind’s writer/director Mark Lund. “I’m delighted to have the opportunity to screen ‘Justice’ at one of the earliest pioneers of Cinema Pubs.”
Set in the near future where advanced MRI technology can read your memory, Justice Is Mind follows businessman and restaurant owner Henri Miller who has been afflicted with unexplained headaches since childhood. When he has the new FVMRI procedure and it reveals that he has allegedly shot and killed two people, the trial of the century begins in which Miller is faced with his own memory at trial. But all is not as it seems as a dark family secret, held by Henri’s minister father Joseph, reveals itself in the courtroom.
Lund adds,“I believe what makes 'Justice' an entertaining film is that it not only addresses ethical and legal issues of neuroscience in the courtroom and patient privacy, but takes the audience on a journey of mystery and intrigue that doesn’t conclude until the very last scene.”
Ticket holders to the May 19th screening will also earn a dollar for dollar credit at Pizza Post in Oxford, Massachusetts. Pizza Post served as one of the filming locations for Justice Is Mind. Patrons just have to take their ticket from the May 19th screening to Pizza Post for redemption. Bob Leveillee, the owner of Pizza Post, plays Mr. Oxford in the film.
