It Would be Idiotic to Miss 3 Idiots this Friday, February 27th!

ECU Screens will be showing 3 Idiots, our last film in this year's Foreign Film Festival, on Friday, February 27th at 4:00 pm in ECU's Estep.

3 Idiots is a fun film that follows Farhan Qureshi and Raju Rastogi who are on a search to find their long-lost college buddy, Rancho. While on their journey, they run into another student who, now very successful, reminds them of a bet they made 10 years prior. The three reminisce and embark on the journey to find Rancho and hilarity ensues.
