Two Movies Set in Our Fair City

Two newspaper articles today describe new movies that take place, at least in part, in Charlottesville.

The San Francisco Chronicle writes about “Don’t Tell,” an Italian-language film:

In a chilling foreshadowing, the distress Sabina feigns in a sound studio later turns out to be all too real when she travels to Charlottesville, Va., to see her brother, Daniele (Luigi Lo Cascio), a college professor. She’s hoping to glean some understanding of her recovered family memories. But Daniele is more inclined to be a tour guide, going on at length about Thomas Jefferson’s neoclassical buildings, than sympathetic kin.

And Newsday writes about Donald Sutherland’s “American Gun”:

Avelino said that during their two-day shoot at the gun shop owned by Sutherland’s character (the story takes place in Charlottesville, Va., the Oregon suburbs and Chicago), Sutherland had to do a crash course in pistol assembly.

I wonder if either of these were actually filmed here. I imagine it would be difficult to fake UVa.
