The Brooklyn Film Festival (BFF) announced their lineup and their opening feature, "HairBrained," starring Brendan Fraser and Parker Posey. This year's festival runs May 31 - June 9 and takes place in Williamsburg with screenings held at indieScreen and Windmill Studios.

"HairBrained" centers on the plight of 14-year-old genius Eli Pettifog as he sets off to Whittman College, a second choice for Ivy League rejects. He is paired with another unlikely student, Leo, who is a 41-year-old seeking to start over after his gambling career ends. While initially less than trilled about their shared dorming situation, the odd pair form a friendship.
