NY screenwriter brings film home to Saratoga


SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) - An independent film based on a book written in three days has a showing this week in Saratoga Springs - home of the author and screenwriter.
Chris Millis wrote his novel "Small Apartments" for an international competition that imposed a three-day deadline. He won the prize and later wrote the screenplay for a movie by the same name.
Actors Billy Crystal, James Caan and Johnny Knoxville are among the quirky cast of characters in "Small Apartments." Millis describes the film as a dark comedy about a guy who kills his landlord and tries to get away with it.
"Small Apartments" is showing at Saratoga Music Hall on Friday to a sold-out audience. Millis has added a second showing Saturday night at Skidmore College. It's also out on DVD.
