OPENS TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 10 (LIMITED RELEASE) - In the offbeat style of her acclaimed feature debut, <i>Finding North</i>, Tanya Wexler's <i>Ball in the House</i> offers an astute social satire that is at once visceral and expressionistic, humorous and tragic. Inspired by events in the life of screenwriter Matthew Swan and filmed on location in Chicago by leading German cinematographer Gero Steffen, it is, finally, a dysfunctional family noir about a kid trying to survive while indulging in such all-American pastimes as baseball, alcoholism, rehabilitation and tough love.
